Europe Eurogroup and ECOFIN meetings in June 2019

The Eu­rogroup and ECOFIN con­vened for their most re­cent meet­ings in Lux­em­bourg on 13-14 June. Ma­jor progress was made on re­forms to the Eu­ro­pean Sta­bil­i­ty Mech­a­nism, which is cru­cial for en­hanc­ing the sta­bil­i­ty of the bank­ing union and the com­mon cur­ren­cy. Eu­ro­pean fi­nance min­is­ters al­so agreed on the main fea­tures of a fu­ture bud­getary in­stru­ment for the eu­ro area. The fi­nanc­ing for the bud­getary in­stru­ment will be de­cid­ed as part of the Mul­ti­an­nu­al Fi­nan­cial Frame­work. Progress was al­so achieved in plans to es­tab­lish a fi­nan­cial trans­ac­tion tax: its ba­sic con­tours are to be de­fined this year in or­der to start levy­ing the tax in 2021.
