Talking Europe

OECD chief: 'Migration is the only hope of certain countries that are ageing'

José Ángel Gurría has been Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) since 2006. He reacts to concerns about Europe's banks, which have lost a quarter of their value since the start of the year. Gurria says there is "no comparison" with the 2008 crisis.


He also asserts his strong opposition to the idea of Britain leaving the European Union.

On the issue of migrants, he insists that the new arrivals will have a positive impact on European economies.
