The Economic and Monetary Union, or the EMU, refers to the process of integrating European economies. The EMU, together with the single market, contributes to economic stability, balanced economic growth, high employment and sustainable public finances. The policy framework has two pillars: the single currency – the euro with a common monetary and exchange rate policy – and the European Central Bank (ECB); and the coordination of member states’ economic policies.
Available in all the official languages of the EU except Irish.
