  • Juncker Plan: New projects signed, European Fund for Strategic Investments supports 300,000 jobs

The latest projects to receive support from the Investment Plan's European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) are Nova School of Business and Economics in Portugal, to extend their campus; Águas de Portugal, to improve water supply and sanitation; Mecachrome, a circular economy project in France; Amadéite Group in France to support investments in marine biotechnology; Vertis Venture 3 in Italy which finances early-stage technology projects; and today the European Investment Bank (EIB) signed an agreement to finance the construction of 524 near-zero-energy social houses in Navarra, Spain, creating more than 700 jobs. The European Commission and the EIB Group estimate that the EFSI has so far supported 300,000 jobs across the EU. By 2020 that figure should be 700,000. This week the European Parliament and Member States came to an agreement in principle on EFSI 2.0 - the extension and reinforcement of the European Fund for Strategic Investments. (For more information about the EFSI 2.0 agreement, see our EFSI 2.0 Q&A, and for more details on any of the projects and Investment Plan results see the new and updated website, which has even more data about EFSI financing including results for all countries, more material such as stories about small businesses that have benefitted so far, and all the latest news. 


  • Convergence criteria for joining the euro: State of play for non-euro area Member States

As President Juncker stated, "It's not my idea to request that Member States now gallop into the euro. They have to fulfil the criteria before joining the euro. This will not change. But a Euro-accession support instrument should help those who want to join." This is why President Juncker in his 2017 speech on the State of the Union, proposed the creation of a Euro-accession Instrument, to offer technical and financial assistance to non-euro area Member States on their path towards full membership of the euro. All EU Member States except Denmark and the United Kingdom are required by the EU Treaties to join the euro once they fulfil all conditions, but as President Juncker said, "no one would be forced to do so. The strict convergence criteria for joining the euro would continue to apply", he explained. Today the European Commission published the latest available facts and figures on the situation of non-euro area Member States vis-à-vis meeting the convergence criteria. See President Juncker's statement in EN, DE and FR. More information is available online in the two factsheets covering the legal parameters (also available in DE) and on the convergence criteria and facts and figures on non-euro area Member States. 

  • Preparation of the Eurogroup and informal ECOFIN meetings, Tallinn 15-16 September 2017

Commissioner Moscovici represented the European Commission at today's meeting of the Eurogroup. Both Vice-President Dombrovskis and Commissioner Moscovici attend the informal ECOFIN Council meetings today and tomorrow in Tallinn, Estonia. At today's Eurogroup, Ministers held a thematic discussion on ways to increase the economic resilience of Member States in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) in order to better withstand internal and external shocks. Ministers were also informed about the state of play of the stability support programme for Greece. Commissioner Moscovici participated in the press conference following the Eurogroup meeting. EU Ministers will exchange views during a working lunch on deepening the Economic and Monetary Union and maximising effectiveness of EU finances. This discussion will be followed by a working session on the same topic based on the Commission's  Reflection Paper on the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union published in May 2017. Ministers will further debate the implications of technological innovation in the area of financial regulation as part of the Capital Markets Union. On Saturday, Ministers will hold a working session on digital economy and taxation, given the importance of adapting European tax systems to the challenges of a modern economy. The discussion comes just days after President Juncker confirmed in his State of the Union letter of intent that the Commission would come forward in 2018 with a proposal for the taxation of the digital economy. In the final working session on Saturday, the ECOFIN will look at ways to increase cost efficiency and sustainability of EU customs IT systems. Vice-President Dombrovskis will participate in the two press conferences following the ECOFIN sessions on 15 and 16 September.   


  • Clean, shared and intelligent mobility: Commission launches the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK

The European Commission is today launching the 16th edition of the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK taking place from 16 to 22 September across more than 2000 towns and cities. The objective of the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK is to promote sustainable urban mobility and this year edition will encourage people to use shared forms of transportation such as bicycle and car sharing under the slogan ‘Sharing gets you further'. Shared mobility solutions can indeed reduce congestion, air pollution and make a significant contribution to the decarbonisation of urban transport, which is responsible for about 23% of the EU's greenhouse gas emissions. This is essential for Europe to be "the leader when it comes to the fight against climate change" envisioned by President Juncker in the State of the Union. The EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK will include events such as car-free days all across Europe and the second edition of the European day without a road death, which aims at raising awareness on road safety.

  • Commission supports more than 150 new reform projects in 15 Member States under its new Structural Reform Support Programme

The Commission's Structural Reform Support Service (SRSS) now engages with 15 EU Member States to carry out more than 150 projects ranging from assistance for reforms in sectors from judiciary to digital. The structural reform assistance comes under the Service's €142.8 million programme from 2017-2020. The role of the Structural Reform Support Service was mentioned in President Juncker's State of the Union Address. Valdis Dombrovskis, Vice-President for the Euro and Social Dialogue, will give an on-the-record briefing today in Tallinn on the latest set of reform support projects. For more information on the Structural Reform Support Service, see the factsheet here. 


  • Solidarity with Italy: European Parliament backs Commission proposal for €1.2 billion of aid following the earthquakes

The Commission welcomes the European Parliament's vote on the proposal to grant Italy €1.2 billion under the EU Solidarity Fund, the highest sum ever mobilised under the fund, following the deadly earthquakes of 2016 and 2017. This exceptional amount will help Umbria, Lazio, Marche and Abruzzo heal and bounce back and, as President Juncker said, help people living in these regions turn the page on this painful chapter and build a new future. "We have repeatedly said that we would not leave Italy alone in this crisis and we are delivering on this commitment," said Commissioner for Regional policy Corina Cre?u, "The EU cares. It is leaving none of its Member States alone in the face of difficulty. Both our emergency help response and long-term assistance are concrete expressions of EU solidarity with its citizens." The proposal now has to be formally adopted by the Council. The money is expected to be paid to Italy this autumn. More information on EU support to Italy following the earthquakes and, more generally, on the EU helping citizens and Member States at home is available online. 


  • European Commission launches public consultations to improve the security of EU citizens' documents 

Have you ever lost your passport while on holiday? Did you ever need an emergency travel document to get home?  Or do you worry that someone might make a fake copy of your ID card? The Commission wants to better address these issues by launching two public consultations to improve the security of EU citizens' documents, as announced in the 2017 EU Citizenship Report. The first consultation will gather views on how to improve the security of identity cards and residence documents.  The second consultation aims at evaluating the existing rules for emergency travel documents for people living or travelling outside the EU where their country does not have an embassy or consulate. Both consultations will run until 5 December 2017 and are open to all EU citizens. 


  • New rules adopted to finance the Single Resolution Board's administrative costs

The Commission has today adopted new rules on how to finance the administrative expenditures of the Single Resolution Board (SRB), the EU agency responsible for ensuring the orderly resolution of failing banks in the Banking Union. A strong Single Resolution Board with sufficient resources and highly qualified staff is essential for the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) to function properly and protect financial stability without recourse to taxpayers' money. The SRB has an autonomous budget, with a dedicated part for its administrative costs that consists of the annual contributions from banks. The administrative budget is distinct from the Single Resolution Fund (SRF), which works on the basis of contributions raised by national resolution authorities, which are then transferred to the Fund. Since it was set up in 2014, the SRB has collected advance payments for its administrative costs only from bigger banks. Today's rules require all banks in the Banking Union to contribute to the SRB's funding, in proportion to the resource requirements that they place on the Board, i.e. according to their size and the risks of their activities. The new rules, which take the form of a delegated act and will enter into force unless opposed by the European Parliament and the Council, will apply from 2018 onwards. Banks that made advance payments from 2015 to 2017 will be reimbursed for any excess contributions, as needed. Other banks will need to make back payments. The new rules are inspired by the European Central Bank's (ECB) supervisory fees, meaning that banks are already familiar with the calculation methodology. For more information, see here.


  • Eurostat: Annuaire régional d'Eurostat 2017: Comment se situe ma région au sein de l'Union européenne? Faits et chiffres aux niveaux des territoires

Les chiffres nationaux seuls ne peuvent pas refléter le tableau complet et parfois complexe de ce qui se produit à un niveau plus détaillé au sein de l'Union européenne (UE). Les États membres de l'UE sont souvent comparés les uns avec les autres, mais en réalité, il est très difficile de comparer un petit pays comme Malte ou le Luxembourg avec l'Allemagne, l'État membre le plus peuplé de l'UE. Comparer des données à un niveau régional ou infranational est donc souvent plus révélateur et une telle analyse peut également mettre en évidence des disparités potentielles à l'intérieur des pays. En tant que telles, les données infranationales contribuent à améliorer la compréhension de la diversité qui existe au sein des États membres et à travers l'UE dans son ensemble. La Commissaire à la politique régionale Corina Cre?u a commenté: "Je salue la publication de cet annuaire, qui est un formidable outil pour aider à la prise de décision. Ces données ont nourri notre analyse et réflexion sur l'état actuel de la cohésion économique, sociale et territoriale en Europe, que vous retrouverez bientôt dans le 7e rapport Cohésion." Un communiqué de presse Eurostat est à votre disposition en ligne.
