In March 2015 the IIEA Economic Governance Group submitted a response to the Analytical Note, Preparing for Next Steps on Better Economic Governance in the Euro Area, which was published by the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, in close cooperation with Presidents Tusk, Dijsselbloem and Draghi. The full report, taking into account the consultations, is due to be presented by Jean-Claude Juncker to the European Summit on 25-26 June, 2015.
The IIEA Economic Governance Group is a high level working group, which analyses the continuing reform of Europe’s economic governance architecture and publishes analytical papers detailing the implications of reforms for Ireland and Europe. The group has published seven papers to date, available here. The themes for 2015 include the EU Commission’s 2015 Draft Budgetary Plans; changes to the European Semester; the EU Commission’s proposed Investment Plan; assessment of the Irish Fiscal Advisory Council; the monetary policy being pursued by the European Central Bank and the Europe 2020 Strategy mid-term review.
