Background

Stvaranje bolje povezane i pravednije ekonomske i monetarne unije jedan je od 10 prioriteta koje je predsjednik Juncker iznio u svojim Političkim smjernicama. Izvješće petorice predsjednika, predstavljeno 22. lipnja 2015., osnova je za ostvarenje tog cilja u sljedećih deset godina./commission/five-presidents-report_hr

Izradu izvješća zatražili su čelnici europodručja na sastanku na vrhu održanom u listopadu 2014. te Europsko vijeće na sastanku održanom u prosincu 2014.

Gospodarsko upravljanje u EU-u godišnje se provodi u okviru ciklusa poznatog kao Europski semestar. Godišnji pregled rasta prvi je korak u tom ciklusu. S vremenom se jačalo i dorađivalo te razvijalo u kontekstu povijesnih događaja. Rad Komisije na ekonomskoj i monetarnoj uniji posljednji je korak u tom procesu.

Koji su sljedeći koraci?

Stage 1 - "Deepening by Doing"

The EU institutions and the euro area countries would build on existing instruments and use existing Treaties to boost competitiveness and structural convergence, achieve responsible fiscal policies at national and euro area level, complete the financial union, and enhance democratic accountability by early 2017.

Stage 2 - "Completing EMU"

More fundamental reforms should be achieved with the vision for new growth perspectives moving from medium to long-term. The convergence process for euro area economies would be made more binding, through for example a set of commonly agreed benchmarks for convergence of a legal nature.

Stage 3 – by 2025

A deep and genuine EMU would provide a stable and prosperous place for all the citizens of the EU member states that share the single currency, which would be attractive for other EU countries to join if they are ready to do so.

To prepare the transition from stage 1 to stage 2, the Commission will present a white paper in spring 2017 outlining the next steps needed, including legal measures to complete EMU in stage 2.
