EU officials in Brussels insist the worst of the Eurozone crisis is over, but is that relief premature? Europe's debt mountain still casts a long shadow. Rising unemployment is fuelling anger on the streets. And Europe's biggest nations are divided on the basic question - where next for the EU? Amid this uncertainty, big practical challenges remain - not least for the EU's Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia. Short term or long term, is there reason to be confident about the European Union?
