Out of intensive care, Europe risks chronic illness

The euro zone is out of the emergency ward, but it may face a chronic debilitating illness rather than a rapid convalescence.

The challenges confronting Europe now are to avoid complacency, rekindle economic growth while cutting debt and prevent national politics pulling the currency area apart.

Last week's European Union summit was the first in two years that was not totally dominated by fire-fighting in the currency bloc's sovereign debt crisis. The relief was audible.

But if the euro is sailing into calmer waters, there are still plenty of concealed rocks just below the surface.

"There is a strong possibility that the crisis is moving from a very hot phase into a cold phase. Does that mean it is over? Not at all. There are still lots of dangers," said Janis Emmanouilidis, senior fellow at the European Policy Centre think-tank.
