    Address to the Australian Business Economists (ABE) Annual Dinner

    Sydney – 24 November 2015

    Account of the monetary policy meeting

    of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank,held in Malta on Thursday, 22 October 2015

    1. Review of financial, economic and monetary developments and policy options

    Financial market developments
