Commission proposes new measures to further strengthen the Capital Markets Union and the Banking Union


First, the Commission is proposing new rules that will allow market-led solutions to support further integration and diversification within Europe's financial sector, leading to a stronger and more resilient Economic and Monetary Union. Second, the Commission is adopting the first legislative measures to enable the EU financial sector to lead the way to a greener and cleaner economy. These proposals confirm Europe's commitment to be the global leader in fighting climate change and implement the Paris Agreement. Third, the Commission is also proposing new rules to give small and medium enterprises better access to financing through public markets. As part of the EU's Capital Markets Union (CMU) agenda, the proposal will help EU companies to tap market-based funding more easily and cheaply so that they can expand.In addition, the Commission is also proposing to strengthen EU rules on motor insurance to ensure that victims of motor vehicle accidents receive the full compensation they are due, even when the insurer is insolvent.
