Økonomi-og finansministrene fra de 27 medlems-stater i Den Europæiske Union holder møde i rådet for økonomi og finans i Bruxelles i dag. Næstformanden for Spaniens regering og økonomi-og finansminister, Elena Salgado, vil have formandskabet for mødet. Mådet i Rådet for Økonomiske og finansielle anliggender vil beskæftige sig med gennemførelsen af stabilitets-og vækstpagten i forbindelse med uforholdsmæssigt store underskud i en gruppe af lande, der omfatter Grækenland.

    Ligeledes vil der blive fokuseret på arbejdet i det europæiske indre marked, og på gennemførelsen af direktivet om tjenesteydelser i det indre marked. Under morgenmaden forud for mødet vil de europæiske ministre analysere de forhold, der behandles på det ekstraordinære topmøde for stats-og regeringschefer og som indkaldes af formanden for Det Europæiske Råd til at fremme det økonomiske opsving. Formanden for Økofin, Elena Salgado, vil give en pressekonference ca. kl. 13:00.

    Kommissær for indre marked, Michel Barnier, udtalte på mødet:

    "The College has not yet had its first formal meeting so it would be premature for me to set out today a precise agenda or a finalised work programme for the months and years to come. Nevertheless, my preparations for my new post have left me with a number of convictions:

    1. First – the crisis is not over and it will have long-term effects on growth.It is essential that we clean up the financial sector with intelligent and effective regulation which does not stifle innovation. This is an essential condition for relaunching sustainable growth. It will also be an asset for our financial sector
    2. Second - the crisis was global but it has not had the same effects on all areas of the world. It has accelerated the emergence of new actors. We have to set ourselves the objective of bringing sustainable answers to the crisis with, not against, all our partners – old and new. It is only together that we can build a set of coherent rules at an international level.
    3. Finally, citizens and companies have moved away from the internal market. Whereas the internal market is our best protection in times of crisis, it is not always easy to see its tangible benefits.

    Faced with these challenges, we need to act. And to act without delay to find all the answers to the crisis but also to build a more competitive Europe. We need to act effectively – without forgetting the principles of better regulation: we do not want to add useless burdens when access to finance is essential for the recovery.

    With these objectives in mind, I have derived some initial orientations. I have decided to focus today on the crisis, and how we respond to it. But our work should be understood in a much broader framework: I want to give a new momentum to the internal market so that it is at the heart of the new economic dynamism essential for Europe."
