A negotiating team led by Alain Lamassoure (EPP, FR) struck a political deal with the Council and the Commission on European Long Term Investment Funds (ELTIFs) on Wednesday evening.

The European Central Bank will take unconventional monetary measures if the economic situation in the euro area requires them, ECB President Mario Draghi reiterated to economic and monetary affairs MEPs on Monday. As the Banking Union takes shape, risks could migrate from banks to the non-banking sector, he warned. Also, speaking as chair of the Systemic Risk Board, he added that there is "a vast scope for more coordination of sanctions against banks between the US and Europe".

KELMTEJN TA' MERĦBA
 
 

Merħba lill-Kumitat għall-Affarijiet Ekonomiċi u Monetarji (ECON). Il-Kumitat huwa responsabbli għall-Unjoni Ekonomika u Monetarja (UEM), ir-regolazzjoni tas-servizzi finanzjarji, il-moviment ħieles ta' kapital u pagamenti, tassazzjoni u politiki ta' kompetizzjoni u għas-sistema finanzjarja internazzjonali.
Is-seba' leġiżlatura kienet ikkaratterizzata mill-aktar kriżi ekonomika, finanzjarja u soċjali serja taż-żminijiet riċenti. Il-Kumitat ECON kellu rwol deċiżiv fl-adozzjoni tal-leġiżlazzjoni li twieġeb għall-kriżi u kellu ammont akbar ta' verifiki u rapporti. Konsegwentement, il-Parlament iddeċieda li jkabbar il-Kumitat minn 50 Membru għal 61 Membru.
L-akbar prijorità tal-preżent hija t-tkabbir u l-impjiegi. L-istabbiltà, il-promozzjoni tal-investiment, ir-riforma u l-koeżjoni soċjali għandhom ikunu ta' appoġġ reċiproku. ECON se jippromwovi dibattitu serju dwar din l-aġenda.
Jiena konvint li issa rridu nimxu lejn UEM ġenwina b'governanza ekonomika effikaċi, li tagħti rendikont ta' għemilha lill-Parlament.
Jeħtieġ li titlesta leġiżlazzjoni ewlenija fuq ir-riforma bankarja, il-kriminalità finanzjarja u l-promozzjoni tal-investiment fi progetti relatati ma' tkabbir fit-tul.
Irridu niżguraw ukoll li l-qafas regolatorju l-ġdid jiġi implimentat u rieżaminat b'mod xieraq, u se nissorveljaw mill-qrib il-Kummissjoni u l-Awtoritajiet Superviżorji Ewropej.  Suq kapitali li huwa regolat u jiffunzjona tajjeb huwa importanti għat-tkabbir.
Finalment, il-Kumitat se jgħaqqad l-isforzi biex tissaħħaħ il-leġittimità demokratika abbażi tal-metodu Komunitarju. UEM profonda u ġenwina għandha tkun UEM demokratika. Il-Kumitat, għalhekk, se jsaħħaħ il-kooperazzjoni mal-Parlamenti Nazzjonali.
