(MULTI) (PDF) – Deepening Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union | Directorate-General for Communication


The economic and financial crisis that hit Europe did not start in the euro area, but laid bare some of its institutional weaknesses. Thanks to determined efforts, Europe is now experiencing a robust economic recovery with growth in all Member States. This provides a window of opportunity to take the next steps towards deepening Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union. It is essential for its members as well as for the EU as a whole. This is why the Juncker Commission made the completion of a deep and fair Economic and Monetary Union one of the ten priorities for its mandate. Significant progress has been made, but more remains to be done. Building on the vision set out in the Five Presidents’ Report of June 2015, the Reflection Paper on the Deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union of May 2017 and President Juncker’s State of the European Union (SOTEU) address, the Commission presented a comprehensive roadmap in December 2017 to further enhance the unity, efficiency and democratic accountability of Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union by 2025. This note provides an overview of what has already been achieved, which proposals are still on the table and which issues require further important decisions for the future of Europe
