EU economic governance
Stronger economic rules to manage the euro and economic and monetary union
The leaflet summarises the main objectives and elements of the enhanced EU economic governance, the biggest reform of economic and monetary union (EMU) since its creation. Beyond strengthening rules on the fiscal, the macroeconomic, and the institutional side, the EU economic growth strategy "Europe 2020" is the way forward to ensure economic growth with high employment, productivity and social cohesion. Ten years after the introduction of euro banknotes and coins, these combined efforts should allow the benefits of EMU and the euro to fully materialise.
