Towards the creation of a eurozone budget ?
“I always have the desire to create a budget for the euro zone to re-create a convergence of economic, he said in the introduction to the conference press held on the 9th of may 2017. It would be a tool to mitigate the damage of unemployment and to stimulate investment.” An idea which is according to him “indispensable”. While, stating, on this subject, that he would like to “as staff, to create the position of a finance minister of the euro zone that could faith be a member of the commission and preside over the Eurogroup. Those are ideas shared with the new head of the State,” he also said.

“On the directive of the posted workers, is nothing new for the moment,” Pierre Moscovici
Interviewed by Batiactu, on the thorny issue of posted workers, the european commissioner for economic and financial Affairs says that “nothing for the moment does not change on the amendment of the directive.” While we understand that the programme of Emmanuel Macron on this topic is a “positive sign” for the coming days in view of an amendment of the directive to posted workers. “But the next president will have to support the proposal of the directive. It will have the political strength to reach a unanimous”, we-a-t-on placed this Tuesday. If the 27 countries failed to reach an agreement, the european Commission could not exclude the implementation, as advocated by the economic Council, social and environmental (CESE), a measure of enhanced cooperation to improve the administrative coordination between States volunteers. A procedure that provides for the membership of a minimum of nine member States of the european Union. In this situation, the directive could then evolve.
