Warsaw, 5-6 July 2012
On 5 July 2012, a conference on “Economic Governance in the EU/euro area – What lessons for Poland?" was held in Warsaw, jointly organised by the Bureau of Government Plenipotentiary for Euro Adoption at the Polish Ministry of Finance and DG ECFIN. The conference aimed at presenting and discussing the recent European economic governance enhancements and simultaneously answering the question of implications of these changes from the Polish and other derogation countries’ perspective. Following the conference, a meeting of the Directors of Communication of the Ministries of Finance and Central Banks of the 27 EU Member States (DirCom), and the EuroTeamnetwork was held on 6 July in Warsaw. The meeting organised by DG ECFIN concentrated on the communication aspects of the EU economic governance.
