COMUNICADO DE IMPRENSA

 

Lisboa, 20 de setembro de 2017

 

·      Acordo comercial UE-Canadá entra em vigor

No próximo dia 21 de setembro, quinta-feira, entra em vigor a título provisório o Acordo Económico e Comercial Global (CETA) entre a UE e o Canadá. A aplicação provisória do CETA no dia 21 de setembro segue-se à sua aprovação pelos Estados-Membros da UE, expressa no Conselho, e pelo Parlamento Europeu. No entanto, o acordo só entrará em vigor de forma definitiva e completa quando todos os Estados-Membros da UE o tiverem ratificado. A Comissão irá trabalhar com os Estados-Membros e o Canadá para assegurar a sua implementação gradual e eficaz.

 

·      Comissão cria fórum de peritos para superar obstáculos transfronteiriços

A fim de explorar integralmente o potencial económico das regiões fronteiriças da UE, onde vivem 150 milhões de cidadãos, a Comissão lança hoje o «Ponto de Contacto Fronteiriço». Presta apoio específico às regiões, a fim de as ajudar a eliminar os obstáculos ao emprego e ao investimento. Para as empresas, os trabalhadores e os estudantes, navegar entre diferentes sistemas administrativos e jurídicos continua a ser complexo e oneroso. Em consonância com o apelo do Presidente Juncker para assegurar a equidade no nosso mercado único no seu discurso sobre o Estado da União de 2017, o Ponto de Contacto Fronteiriço ajudará as regiões a cooperar melhor com um conjunto de ações concretas.

 

  • Creating a stronger and more integrated European financial supervision for the Capital Markets Union

European consumers, investors and businesses will benefit from stronger and more integrated financial markets, thanks to plans by the Commission to reform the EU's supervisory architecture. The European Commission is today proposing reforms to pave the way for further financial integration and a full Capital Markets Union, to promote jobs, growth and investments in Europe and to strengthen the Economic and Monetary Union. President Juncker underlined the importance of the Capital Markets Union, one of the Commission's flagship projects, in his State of the Union Address. The proposals also include steps to foster the development of financial technologies (FinTech) and to make sure that sustainability considerations are systematically taken into account in supervisory practices at the European level. Once adopted, the proposals will improve the mandates, governance and funding of the ESAs for banking (European Banking Authority, EBA), for securities and financial markets (European Securities and Markets Authority, ESMA), and for insurance and pensions (European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority, EIOPA). To ensure a uniform application of EU rules and promote a true Capital Markets Union, the proposals also entrust ESMA with direct supervisory power in specific financial sectors. In addition, the Commission is proposing targeted changes to the composition and organisation of the ESRB, which monitors stability risks for the financial system as a whole. For more information, please consult the press release, Q&A and factsheet.

  • Juncker Plan set to trigger €236.1 billion across the EU

The Investment Plan for Europe - the so-called Juncker Plan - is now expected to trigger €236.1 billion in investments. Following this month's meeting of the European Investment Bank's (EIB) Board of Directors, operations approved under the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) now represent a total financing volume of €46.5 billion and are located in all 28 Member States. The EIB has approved 312 EFSI-backed operations, supported by €36.1 billion in EFSI financing. The European Investment Fund (EIF) has also approved 306 SME financing agreements, with total financing under the EFSI of €10.4 billion. Around 454,000 small and medium-sized businesses are expected to benefit from improved access to finance as a result of these EIF agreements. 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. On 13 September, 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 Investment Plan projects and results see the new and updated website). 

 

  • Commission sets out path towards fair taxation of the Digital Economy

The European Commission launched today a new EU agenda to ensure that the digital economy is taxed in a fair and growth-friendly way. The current tax framework does not fit with modern realities. The tax rules in place today were designed for the traditional economy and cannot capture activities which are increasingly based on intangible assets and data. As a result, the effective tax rate of digital companies in the EU is estimated to be half that of traditional companies – and often much less. At the same time, patchwork unilateral measures by Member States to address the problem threaten to create new obstacles and loopholes in the Single Market. The Communication adopted by the Commission today sets out the challenges Member States currently face when it comes to acting on this pressing issue and outlines possible solutions to be explored. The aim is to ensure a coherent EU approach to taxing the digital economy that supports the Commission's key priorities of completing the Digital Single Market and ensuring the fair and effective taxation of all companies. Today's Communication paves the way for a legislative proposal on EU rules for the taxation of profits in the digital economy, as confirmed by President Juncker in the 2017 State of the Union. Those rules could be set out as early as spring 2018. Today's paper should also feed into international work in this area, notably in the G20 and the OECD. For more information, please consult the press release and Q&A.

  • Commission acts to prevent mis-selling of insurance products

The Commission has today adopted rules to protect consumers when they buy insurance products in the EU. New rules on product oversight and governance will for the first time oblige insurers to prioritise the interest of consumers when designing, developing and distributing all insurance products from 2018 onwards. In addition, new conduct of business rules will ensure that consumers benefit from a high level of protection when they invest their savings in insurance-based investment products, such as certain types of life-insurance policies. Sellers of insurance products will have to comply with new standards on preventing and managing conflicts of interest, and on accepting commissions and payments from third parties (so-called "inducements"). The rules also set out which information sellers must gather from their customers when providing advice and in which cases investment products might be sold with limited advice or without advice. The implementing rules adopted today, in the form of two delegated regulations, stem from the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD). They will enter into force on 23 February 2018 along with the IDD, following scrutiny by the European Parliament and the Council. They follow the adoption in August 2017 of an implementing technical standard (ITS) on the Insurance Product Information Document (IPID). More information is available online

He further had an interactive discussion on democracy and media at Columbia University. High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini took part in the ministerial meeting of the like-minded group on Syria, hosted by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. She also attended a high level meeting on the G5 Sahel, organised by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, and spoke at the Ad-hoc Liaison Committee for Palestine together with Commissioner Johannes Hahn. She chaired an informal meeting of EU Foreign Ministers who were joined by the UN Special Representative of the Secretary General for Libya Ghassan Salamé; Commissioner Hahn also participated. Commissioner Neven Mimica hosted a meeting of the Scaling up Nutrition Movement Lead Group and addressed the UN Private Sector Forum 2017 on the financing of the 2030 Agenda. Commissioner Chrystos Stylianides delivered a speech on Hurricane Irma and spoke at an event on Rebuilding Shattered Lives and Communities: Chibok and Yazidi Girls and Women, where he pointed out that women and girls are the most vulnerable people in conflicts and crises. As the leader of the global initiative on gender-based violence protection, the EU is dedicating more than €200 million per year in humanitarian aid to related healthcare. Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos underlined the important need for a global approach on cybersecurity at a high-level event on the role and responsibilities of private actors in strengthening the stability and international security of cyberspace. The EU's agenda at #UNGA on Tuesday will be dominated by further multilateral and a high number of bilateral meetings as well as the annual EU event, this year dedicated to the Erasmus programme.

 

  • Eurostat clarifies how to record energy performance contracts in national accounts

Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Commission, has published today an updated guidance note on the recording of energy performance contracts (EPCs) in government accounts. The revised guidance note clarifies the accounting rules applied to the treatment of energy performance contracts. It note follows up on the work already undertaken by Eurostat to clarify the accounting rules for various types of public investment, including the Guide to the Statistical Treatment of Public Private Partnerships published last year. Energy performance contracts in the public sector offer a practical solution to make public buildings and other public infrastructures more energy efficient, as the initial investment can be covered by a private partner and repaid by guaranteed energy savings. However, frequently this type of contract simultaneously contains elements of a rental, service, lease, purchase or loan agreement, making its recording complex. At the request of Member States, Eurostat has worked with National Statistical Institutes (NSIs) to reflect on the most appropriate recording of EPCs in government accounts, resulting in the guidance note published today. More information can be found in a press release and memo online. The guidance note is available to download here.

  • 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."

·      Estado da União em 2017: Aproveitar os ventos favoráveis

O Presidente da Comissão Europeia, Jean-Claude Juncker, proferiu hoje o seu Discurso sobre o Estado da União de 2017 perante os deputados do Parlamento Europeu, em Estrasburgo, apresentando as suas prioridades para o próximo ano e expondo a sua visão da forma como a União Europeia poderá evoluir até 2025 (ver discurso integral).

O Presidente da Comissão Europeia, Jean-Claude Juncker, declarou hoje: «A Europa tem novamente o vento a seu favor. Contudo, nada alcançaremos se não aproveitarmos os ventos favoráveis. (...) Devemos traçar o rumo para o futuro. Como escreveu Mark Twain, daqui por uns anos lamentaremos mais aquilo que não tivermos feito do que aquilo que fizemos. Chegou o momento de construir uma Europa mais unida, mais forte e mais democrática na perspetiva de 2025». O discurso do Presidente Juncker no Parlamento Europeu foi acompanhado da adoção de iniciativas concretas pela Comissão Europeia em matéria de comércio, escrutínio dos investimentos, cibersegurança, indústria, dados e democracia, passando imediatamente das palavras à ação. As várias fichas informativas hoje publicadas destacam também alguns dos principais elementos abordados no discurso do Presidente.

 

  • Commission welcomes agreement in principle to extend and reinforce Investment Plan's European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI)

One year after President Juncker announced the proposal in his State of the Union speech, the European Parliament and Member States have come to an agreement in principle on the extension and strengthening of the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), the core of the Investment Plan for Europe. The agreement extends the EFSI's duration as well as increases its financial capacity. Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, said: "Tonight's agreement means that the new and improved European Fund for Strategic Investments – or EFSI 2.0 - will benefit European citizens until at least 2020. The EFSI has already reached all 28 Member States, supporting key public and private investment projects and financing a huge range of small businesses and start-ups. I thank the Council and the Parliament for their hard work and commitment on this important piece of legislation. With its increased firepower and duration, the EFSI will continue to be an important driving force in the EU's economic recovery." The draft EFSI 2.0 Regulation that has been agreed in principle still has to be formally adopted by the European Parliament and the Council. For more information about the agreement, see our full press release.

  • Discurso do presidente Juncker na Conferência anual dos embaixadores da UE

O Presidente da Comissão Europeia, Jean-Claude Juncker, dirigiu-se esta manhã aos embaixadores da UE na sua Conferência anual em Bruxelas. No discurso de abertura, o Presidente Juncker relembrou que «Para os outros, a Europa é sinónimo de paz, bem?estar, valores e Estado de direito. (...) Impressionámos o mundo por termos feito do espaço económico europeu, apesar das várias dificuldades, um grande mercado interno; e este é um bom desempenho». Ao evocar as boas notícias para a economia europeia, o Presidente Juncker constatou que «há 21 meses que a economia europeia evolui mais rapidamente que a economia americana», que «a taxa de emprego na Europa é a mais elevada de sempre» e que em alguns países «o desemprego está a diminuir consideravelmente».

A forte concorrência deste ano demonstrou a dinâmica dos nossos ecossistemas locais de inovação. Aguardo com expectativa a oportunidade de anunciar os vencedores em novembro e aprofundar a nossa cooperação». O vencedor do concurso será anunciado na Web Summit de Lisboa, em 7 de novembro, e receberá 1 milhão de euros para reforçar o apoio da cidade concedido a atividades inovadoras, enquanto duas outras cidades finalistas receberão 100 000 euros cada uma.

  • Comissão propõe possibilidades de pesca no mar Báltico para 2018 com aumento das quotas para o arenque e o salmão

A Comissão Europeia adotou hoje uma proposta relativa a oportunidades de pesca no mar Báltico para 2018. Em especial, a Comissão propõe aumentar as capturas de arenque central, espadilha e salmão da bacia principal e manter as capturas da importante unidade populacional de bacalhau do Báltico ocidental. Para as restantes unidades populacionais, a Comissão propõe reduzir as capturas. A proposta deste ano inclui ainda uma proibição à pesca da enguia do mar Báltico, que não faz tradicionalmente parte das propostas anuais de capturas admissíveis, mas que se revelou necessária face às provas científicas alarmantes e aos níveis historicamente baixos desta espécie.

  • Solidarité avec l'Italie: l'UE offre son aide suite au séisme d'Ischia et soutient toujours les populations affectées un an après le séisme du 24 août 2016

La Commission suit de près le séisme qui a frappé l'île d'Ischia au large de Naples et a annoncé qu'elle se tenait à la disposition des autorités italiennes pour une aide d'urgence. Ce séisme est survenu juste avant le 24 août, date à laquelle l'année dernière l'Italie a été atteinte en son cœur par un tremblement de terre qui ôta la vie à près de 300 personnes dans les régions italiennes des Abruzzes, du Latium, des Marches et de l'Ombrie. Il fut suivi d'autres secousses, en octobre 2016 et en janvier 2017. Cette date reste une plaie à vif pour de nombreuses âmes endeuillées. Les Italiens n'ont pas oublié, et l'Europe n'a pas oublié les Italiens: voilà un an maintenant qu'elle apporte son aide aux populations affectées. Sitôt après la catastrophe, la Commission européenne a soutenu les autorités de protection civile italiennes, fournissant des cartes du système de satellite européen de Copernicus via le Centre de coordination de la réaction d’urgence. Le Président Juncker avait alors exprimé son admiration pour la force et la détermination du peuple italien. Il avait annoncé que la Basilique San Benedetto de Norcia, détruite par le séisme, serait restaurée avec l'aide des fonds européens, en signe d'amitié intangible et de solidarité avec l'Italie. En décembre, la Commission a versé une première aide financière de 30 millions d'euros au titre du Fonds de Solidarité de l'UE et a proposé en juin 2017 de le mobiliser à hauteur de 1,2 milliard d'euros – la plus importante aide jamais accordée sous ce Fonds. En parallèle, la Commission a proposé un nouveau mécanisme de soutien suite aux catastrophes naturelles, afin de financer les travaux de reconstruction à 95% avec les fonds européens. Ce mécanisme, désormais en vigueur depuis juillet 2017, est disponible pour tous les Etats membres qui seraient touchés par une catastrophe. Enfin, la semaine dernière (17 août), de jeunes volontaires du Corps européen de solidarité sont arrivés à Norcia pour aider à reconstruire et assurer des services à la population. Au total, près de 230 jeunes devraient prêter main forte aux communautés victimes des tremblements de terre en Italie jusqu'en 2020. Ils sont autant de symboles d'une Europe qui protège et s'engage pour ses citoyens. Plus d'informations sur le soutien de l'UE à l'Italie suite aux tremblements de terre sont disponibles dans cette fiche technique.

 

 

  • Capital Markets Union: Commission launches consultation on further reducing barriers to post-trade services across financial markets

The Commission is launching today a public consultation on how to improve post-trade services used in financial transactions, including clearing, settlement and collateral management. As part of the Capital Markets Union Action Plan, the Commission is currently reviewing progress made in removing barriers to post-trade market infrastructure. This consultation seeks to gather views on a range of issues including the current state of post-trade markets, the main trends and challenges faced by post-trade services providers and users as well as the best ways to remove barriers, including through financial technology. On average, cross-border trades remain more expensive than domestic trades and a more efficient post-trading environment could reduce such costs. As part of its review, in February 2016 the Commission created a European Post-Trade Forum (EPTF) to assess the evolution of the EU post-trade landscape and progress in removing barriers. The EPTF has today published its report which can be found here. The results of today's consultation will contribute to a Communication on post-trade planned for the end of 2017, and to future legislative reviews. The consultation questionnaire is available here and will remain open until 15 November 2017.
