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. Fees and rules for all payment accounts should be transparent and comparable and it should be easy to switch to another payment account that offers better terms, under the agreed new rules.

Work on setting up the EU's bank supervisor and undertaking the planned asset quality review is "well on track", ECB bank supervisor chair Daniele Nouy told the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on Tuesday. Legislators on all sides now need to show willingness to compromise in order to agree on a mechanism for winding down banks that can deliver rapid and reliable decisions and mobilise credible and readily accessible funding, she added.

The lead MEPs in charge for the second pillar of banking union, the single resolution mechanism, have begun preparing texts for Parliament’s April plenary vote. These texts will take on board concerns of some member states in a spirit of compromise, while at the same time maintaining a credible and fair system, able to reach the fundamental goals. The MEPs restate that they will not sign up to a system with serious and evident flaws.

Failing banks still need a “strong and swift” EU decision-making system, and the European Central Bank Supervisor alone should decide when they are in danger of becoming unviable, ECB President Mario Draghi told the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on Monday. The EU economy is now a “half full glass”, but it is “still too early to claim ‘mission accomplished’”, he added.

The EU/ECB/IMF "Troika" helped four EU countries out of the crisis and prevented it from getting worse. But flaws in the way the Troika worked hindered national "ownership" of economic reforms, and compromised transparency and accountability, says an Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee resolution passed on Monday.

The ultimate owners of companies and trusts would have to be listed in public registers in EU countries, under updated draft anti-money laundering rules approved by the Economic Affairs and the Justice and Home Affairs committees on Thursday.

Parlament Europejski jest jedną z głównych instytucji określających tematy i harmonogram prac w obrębie polityki europejskiej, a Komisja Gospodarcza i Monetarna (ECON) odgrywa kluczową rolę w działalności Parlamentu. Odpowiada ona za takie dziedziny jak polityka gospodarcza i monetarna UE, polityka w zakresie opodatkowania i polityka konkurencji, swobodny przepływ kapitału oraz regulacja usług finansowych (bankowość, ubezpieczenia, fundusze emerytalne, księgowość, międzynarodowe systemy monetarne i finansowe itd.). Ponadto ze względu na to, że ogromna większość prac Parlamentu odbywa się na szczeblu komisji, komisja ECON wykonuje znaczną część pracy parlamentarnej w tych jakże ważnych obszarach polityki gospodarczej i monetarnej. To plasuje komisję ECON w centrum prac Parlamentu dotyczących obecnego kryzysu gospodarczego i finansowego i daje jej znaczny wpływ na agendę tej polityki w ramach UE i na szczeblu międzynarodowym.
Jeżeli chodzi o politykę monetarną Unii oraz o funkcjonowanie UGW i Europejskiego Systemu Walutowego, wielkie znaczenie ma odpowiedzialność EBC przed Parlamentem, gdyż stanowi on istotną przeciwwagę dla niezależności banku centralnego.
Komisja ECON odgrywa ważką rolę w stanowieniu prawa UE, gdyż Parlament jest wraz z Radą współlegislatorem w większości obszarów polityki UE. Prawodawstwo UE często determinuje krajowe przepisy ustawowe i wykonawcze państw członkowskich, w szczególności w zakresie usług finansowych, a także, po wejściu w życie Traktatu z Lizbony, w obszarze zarządzania gospodarką. W ten sposób członkowie komisji ECON mogą kształtować prawo UE w tych ważnych dziedzinach polityki UE.
