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.

Il-Parlament Ewropew għandu rwol kbir fit-tfassil tal-aġenda fil-qasam tal-politiki Ewropej u l-Kumitat għall-Affarijiet Ekonomiċi u Monetarji (ECON) huwa ta' importanza ewlenija fix-xogħol tal-Parlament. Huwa responsabbli għal kwistjonijiet bħalma huma l-politiki ekonomiċi u monetarji tal-UE, il-politiki tat-taxxa u tal-kompetizzjoni, il-moviment ħieles tal-kapital u r-regolazzjoni tas-servizzi finanzjarji (il-banek, l-assigurazzjoni, il-fondi tal-pensjonijiet, il-ġestjoni tal-assi/fondi, il-kontabilità, is-sistemi monetarji u finanzjarji internazzjonali eċċ.). Barra minn hekk, minħabba li l-kotra tax-xogħol tal-Parlament issir fil-livell tal-Kumitati, huwa l-ECON li jieħu ħsieb il-parti l-kbira tal-ħidma Parlamentari dwar dawn l-oqsma ekonomiċi u monetarji prominenti. B'hekk l-ECON jinsab fil-qalba tax-xogħol tal-Parlament dwar il-kriżi ekonomika u finanzjarja li għaddejjin minnha, u għaldaqstant għandu influwenza sinifikanti fuq l-aġenda politika, sew fl-UE kif ukoll internazzjonalment.
 
F'dak li jirrigwarda l-politiki monetarji tal-Unjoni u l-funzjonament tal-Unjoni Monetarja Ewropea u s-Sistema Monetarja Ewropea, l-obbligu li l-BĊE jagħti rendikont lill-Parlament huwa ta' importanza sinifikanti, minħabba li jservi ta' kontrapiż importanti għall-indipendenza tal-bank ċentrali.
 
L-ECON jaqdi funzjoni ewlenija fit-tiswir tal-leġiżlazzjoni tal-UE, minħabba l-Parlament, flimkien mal-Kunsill, huwa koleġiżlatur fil-parti l-kbira tal-oqsma ta' politika tal-UE. Il-liġijiet tal-UE spiss jiddeterminaw il-liġijiet u r-regolamenti nazzjonali fl-Istati Membri, speċjalment fis-servizzi finanzjarji u, wara li daħal fis-seħħ it-Trattat ta' Lisbona, fil-qasam tal-governanza ekonomika Ewropea. Dan jagħti lok biex il-Membri tal-ECON isawru l-leġiżlazzjoni tal-UE f'dawn l-oqsma importanti ta' politika tal-UE.
