“In line with the Leaders' Agenda and the outcome of its December 2017
meeting, welcoming national contributions, including the one presented by
France and Germany, the Euro Summit today agreed on the following:
o […] The Eurogroup will further discuss all the items mentioned in the
letter by the Eurogroup President.
o The Euro Summit will come back to these issues in December 2018.”
The June 2018 letter by the Eurogroup President mentioned, among

Economic and Monetary Union.
Euro Summit statement – June 2018
Deepening EMU agenda (2)
• “In the context of the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), we
mandate the Eurogroup to work on the design, modalities of
implementation and timing of a budgetary instrument for convergence
and competitiveness for the euro area, and ERM II Member States on a
voluntary basis.
• It will be part of the EU budget, coherent with other EU policies, and
subject to criteria and strategic guidance from the euro area Member
States.
• We will determine its size in the context of the MFF.
• The features of the budgetary instrument will be agreed in June 2019.
• The instrument will be adopted in accordance with the legislative
procedure, as foreseen by the Treaties, on the basis of the relevant
Commission proposal to be amended if necessary.”
Euro Summit statement – December 2018

Competitiveness (BICC)
• What priorities would it finance?
• Focusing on structural reforms?
• Supporting investments?
• Both aspects?
• How to ensure coherence with other EU policies?
• What type of resources? What type of conditions?
• What type of governance structure and decision-making?
Way forward
