The EU will soon have new leadership that among other challenges will have to tackle the economic consequences of trade tensions and heightened global uncertainty while continuing to deepen the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU).
We will be making an assessment of the achievements of the Juncker Commission, but also look forward to the still unfinished business. Specifically, the Euro Area needs to be strengthened, by completing the Banking Union and creating an efficient Capital Market Union. Safe assets and central fiscal capacity are also important tools to make the EMU more resilient and ensure it works for all Member States.
Join us for a breakfast with Pierre Moscovici who will provide invaluable insights about the achievements of the outgoing EU Commission and reflect on key priorities under the next mandate in terms of EMU deepening, fiscal policy, structural reforms & corporate taxation
Pierre Moscovici, European Commissioner for Economic & Financial Affairs, Taxation & Customs
Moderated by Richard Beales, Deputy Editor BreakingViews, Reuters
As Commissioner, Pierre Moscovici is in charge of the application of the Stability and Growth Pact, as well as ensuring the economic soundness of Commission proposals and deepening the Economic and Monetary Union to create the conditions for jobs, growth and investment, and encouraging further structural reforms.
On taxation matters, Commissioner Moscovici is responsible for developing a value added tax system at EU level, improving the functioning of the internal market in both direct and indirect taxation and fighting tax fraud and tax evasion. His responsibilities also include the development and management of an efficient EU customs union.
Before his designation, he served in the European Parliament and in the French National Assembly, mainly working on economic issues. He has been Minister for European Affairs (1997-2002) and Minister for the Economy and Finance (2012-2014) in France.
This event is being produced with support from the European Union.
