Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said euro region governments will agree measures to boost the enhanced European Financial Stability Facility’s lending capacity even while rejecting a role for the European Central Bank in leveraging the EFSF’s funds.
“We will agree on the necessary measures for an effective use of the instruments of the financing facility so that we can fight the danger of contagion pre-emptively,” Schaeuble told reporters after a meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors from the 20 biggest economies in Paris. Leveraging the EFSF via the ECB is “not on the table,” he said.
