The Fiscal Compact of the EU

At the European Council on December 8-9 2011 the 17 eurozone members and another 6 countries outside the euro area (Bulgaria, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania) have agreed to sign an intergovernmental agreement, aimed at strengthening budgetary discipline and for greater coordination of economic policies. There are another three countries that at that time needed to consult their national parliaments or had doubts. Only Britain was firmly against the agreement, after the country vetoed planned amendments to the EU treaties, also aiming deeper coordination and discipline. According to the deal in December, the new fiscal pact has to be ready by March 2012. Already intensified writing of the text is taking place, which is why euinside has decided to detach the covering of the various versions of the pact, as well as the political processes accompanying it in a separate subject, because undoubtedly this is going to be one of the hottest subjects of 2012.

#EUCO This afternoon, in Brussels, will begin the last EU summit this year. It will be the first that will work on Donald Tusk's Leaders' Agenda (details in the link below). In his agenda two topics are planned for the December European Council - migration and the future of the EMU. Both have already created strong tensions between Tusk and the Commission after the European Council president came up with documents of his own, which are much more reduced than those of the Commission, and reactions in the building across the street were furious. The leaders will mark the launch by 25 member states of PESCO at a special ceremony today. Leaders will be joined by NATO secretary general to discuss EU-NATO cooperation. Leaders are also expected to extend sanctions against Russia after hearing a report by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Progress on the Brexit negotiations will be discussed on Friday. This is one of the toxic issues on the agenda. On Friday will take place also the expanded euro area summit, which is open for non-euro countries as well. Stay tuned for details and live updates throughout the day and tomorrow! euinsi.de/0Dcy
