Assessments of Germany's stability programme
As required by the Stability and Growth Pact, each spring Germany submits a stability programme which presents an update of the medium-term fiscal strategy.
Based on an assessment by the Commission prepared by DG ECFIN, the Council adopts an opinion on the programme and country-specific recommendations in the scope of the European Semester.
Euro area Member States submit stability programmes while countries outside the euro area submit convergence programmes.
