Dijsselbloem will today chair an informal Eurogroup meeting in Tallinn, Estonia.

Rumours on the eve of the meeting were rife that the Dutch finance minister would announce his retirement from the post, following a bruising election defeat last March.

Talks to form a coalition government in the Netherlands have been ongoing since the election took place on 15 March, with parties now close to an agreement.

Dijsselbloem to open debate on his future as Eurogroup chief

Acting Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem said yesterday (20 March) that he would have a discussion with his eurozone colleagues about his continuation as Eurogroup president, following the electoral debacle of his party in The Netherlands.

But Dijsselbloem’s spokesperson noted that there were no announcements scheduled in the programme.
