On 29 June, the EU leaders are gathering for the second part of the European Council after reaching an agreement over the night on emergency action to lower borrowing costs of Italy and Spain. The European Union leaders agreed early Friday to use the continent's bailout fund to funnel money directly to struggling Spanish banks, a step that avoids increasing Spain's overall sovereign debt burden. They also agreed to the idea of a tighter fiscal union in the longer term. Yesterday, the European Council Union also agreed to devote 120 billion Euros for 'immediate growth measures' and up to 4.5 billion Euros in "project bonds" to fund investments in transport, sustainable energy and digital infrastructure.
