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.

Anyone legally residing in the EU should have the right to open a basic payment account, and this right should not be denied on grounds of nationality or place of residence, Parliament's negotiators and the Council representatives agreed on Thursday.

Euroopa Parlament on oluline Euroopa poliitiliste eesmärkide väljatöötaja ning majandus- ja rahanduskomisjon (ECON) täidab parlamendi töös võtmerolli. Majandus- ja rahanduskomisjoni vastusalasse kuuluvad sellised valdkonnad nagu ELi majandus- ja rahanduspoliitika, maksundus- ja konkurentsipoliitika, kapitali vaba liikumine ja finantsteenuste reguleerimine (pangad, kindlustus, pensionifondid, varade/fondide valitsemine, raamatupidamine, rahvusvahelised rahandus- ja finantssüsteemid jms). Kuna parlamendi põhitöö toimub komisjonides, tehakse suurem osa parlamentaarsest tööst neis tähtsates majandus- ja rahanduspoliitika valdkondades just selles komisjonis. Majandus- ja rahanduskomisjonil on seega praeguse majandus- ja finantskriisi ajal parlamendi töös keskne roll ning ta mõjutab oluliselt poliitilist tegevuskava ELis ja rahvusvahelisel tasandil.
Liidu rahapoliitikat, majandus- ja rahaliidu ning Euroopa rahasüsteemi toimimist arvestades on väga oluline, et Euroopa Keskpangal on aruandekohustus Euroopa Parlamendi ees, sest see on vastukaaluks keskpanga sõltumatusele.
Majandus- ja rahanduskomisjonil on võtmeroll ELi õigusaktide vastuvõtmisel, sest koos nõukoguga on parlament ELi kaasseadusandja enamikus ELi poliitikavaldkondades. ELi õigusaktidega määratakse tihtipeale kindlaks seadused ja õigusnormid liikmesriikides, eelkõige finantsteenuste ja pärast Lissaboni lepingu jõustumist ka majanduse juhtimise alal. See annab majandus- ja rahanduskomisjoni liikmetele võimaluse kujundada ELi õigust neis olulistes poliitikavaldkondades.
