The eurozone could brave the fallout from a Brexit vote, Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem has claimed, despite projections that EU countries could be among the hardest hit if the UK decides to leave.
Mr Dijsselbloem said that the eurozone had “the capacity to deal with any shocks that might occur”. Speaking in Luxembourg, he said that the Eurogroup was “concerned [by Brexit and] are following it closely, we are considering possible scenarios”.
The Dutch finance minister added that the Eurogroup trusted “on the wisdom of the British people as we always do”.
