ECB says Draghi will not attend Jackson Hole meet
FRANKFURT Aug 28 (Reuters) - European Central Bank President Mario Draghi will not attend the U.S. Federal Reserve's Jackson Hole conference starting later this week due to a heavy workload, an ECB spokesman said on Tuesday.
"That's correct," the spokesman said, when asked whether Draghi was no longer planning to attend the meeting. "He has a very heavy workload in the coming days."
The Bundesbank said its chief, Jens Weidmann, still planned to attend the meeting.
