Possible adoption by Lithuania of the euro

Lithuania is the next Member State expected to adopt the euro, as of 1 January 2015.  The standard decision-making procedure in Council during June and July involves the consultation of the European Parliament which is particularly challenging this year due to European Parliament elections.
While the formal decision has to be taken by the new incoming ECON and Parliament, the current ECON Committee is undertaking most of the substantial preparation of the procedure. This informal preparatory work under the Rapporteur Mr Werner Langen (EPP, DE) is now progressing towards a vote of the informal ECON report on 7 April. This report will not be tabled to Plenary under this Parliament but remain unfinished business with a de facto political ECON mandate that will need to be reconfirmed by the new ECON committee. The new Parliament and new ECON will have to formally deal with this file as a matter of urgency in the beginning of July, towards an adoption in Plenary on 14-17 July 2014.

El Parlamento Europeo es un actor destacado en el marco de la política europea y la Comisión de Asuntos Económicos y Monetarios (ECON) desempeña un papel esencial en los trabajos del Parlamento. Su ámbito de competencias abarca tanto las políticas económicas y monetarias de la Unión Europea, como las políticas fiscales y de competencia, la libre circulación de capitales y la regulación de los servicios financieros (bancos, seguros, fondos de pensiones, gestión de activos y fondos, contabilidad, sistemas monetarios y financieros internacionales, etc.). Además, dado que la mayor parte del trabajo del Parlamento se efectúa a nivel de las comisiones,  la Comisión ECON es la que lleva a cabo la principal labor parlamentaria en estos sectores clave que son las políticas económica y monetaria. Ello sitúa a esta comisión en el centro de la actividad parlamentaria sobre la actual crisis económica y financiera y hace que tenga una considerable influencia en la agenda política tanto a escala europea como internacional.
 
En lo que respecta a las políticas monetarias de la Unión y al funcionamiento de la UEM y del sistema monetario europeo, la responsabilidad del BCE ante el Parlamento cumple una función primordial, en la medida en que constituye un importante contrapeso frente a la independencia del Banco Central.
 
La Comisión ECON desempeña un papel esencial en la elaboración del Derecho de la UE, puesto que el Parlamento, junto con el Consejo, es el colegislador en la mayoría de los ámbitos políticos de la Unión Europea. El Derecho de la UE determina a menudo las legislaciones y reglamentaciones nacionales en los Estados miembros, especialmente en el caso de los servicios financieros y, tras la entrada en vigor del Tratado de Lisboa, en el ámbito de la gobernanza económica de la Unión Europea. Ello permite a los miembros de la Comisión ECON configurar la legislación europea en estos importantes sectores de la política de la Unión.
