EMU: both reinforced and displaying solidarity

on December 12, 2012, 17:50
Interview - António Vitorino

Ahead of the meeting of the European council on 13 and 14 December 2012, António Vitorino, the president of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, answers the following questions:

1. The European Council is going to examine the Final Report on the EMU submitted by Herman Van Rompuy and the other three presidents. What is your opinion of this report?

2. In view of the stakes that it involves in terms of sovereignty, what are the moves through which “economic and budgetary union” can really be deepened?

3. Must European political union be strengthened in the context of the euro zone, including through the establishment of a budget specifically devoted to that zone?

4. After the recent budget summit, this European Council is also going to focus on solidarity among the euro zone’s member countries. What is your view of the debates currently taking place?

5. The “growth pact” and a fresh boost for the single market are on this European Council’s agenda. What are your recommendations in that sphere?

6. An in-depth debate on defence is also due to get under way at this European Council meeting. What progress do you think is possible, or desirable, in this sphere?
