Portugal’s finance minister hopeful of Eurogroup presidency

Published on 10/08/2017

Portugal Finance Minister Mario Centeno ‘has not excluded the possibility’ of becoming the next president of the Eurogroup following media reports that he could replace Jeroen Dijsselbloem who lost his job as finance minister in the Dutch general election in March.

The Eurogroup is made up of the 19 finance ministers from the euro area countries and currently is led by the Dutch Finance Minister who was meant to continue as its president until January 2018, until electoral disaster struck back home.
