Hearings, Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes, posters and contributions from speakers.

Welcome words
 
 

Welcome to the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON). The Committee is responsible for Economic and monetary Union (EMU), the regulation of financial services, the free movement of capital and payments, taxation and competition policies, and the international financial system.
The 7th legislature was marked by the most serious economic, financial and social crisis of recent times. The ECON Committee played a decisive role in the adoption of legislation responding to the crisis and took on an increased workload of scrutiny and reports. Consequently the Parliament decided to enlarge the Committee from 50 to 61 Members.
Our top priority today is growth and jobs. Stability, the promotion of investment, reform and social cohesion must be mutually reinforcing. ECON will promote a serious debate on this agenda.
I am convinced that we must move now towards a genuine EMU with an effective economic government, accountable to Parliament.
We need to complete key legislation on banking reform, financial crime and promoting investment in long-term growth-related projects.
We also have to ensure that the new regulatory framework is properly implemented and reviewed, and will monitor closely the Commission and the European Supervisory Authorities. A well regulated and functioning capital market is key to growth.
Finally, the Committee will join the efforts to strengthen democratic legitimacy on the basis of the Community method. A deep and genuine EMU must be a democratic EMU. The Committee will therefore strengthen its cooperation with National Parliaments.
