Spain’s economy minister Calvino favourite to lead Eurogroup


Spain has proposed its economy minister, Nadia Calvino, to head the influential Eurogroup of 19 euro zone finance ministers, the government said on Thursday, as EU officials tipped her to secure the job.

“It would be an honour for the Spanish Government, and for me as its president, if Nadia Calvino were to take on the Presidency,” Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez tweeted. “For the first time, Spain and a woman would lead this institution.”
