European Parliamentary Week 2019

In the context of the economic and budgetary policies scrutiny, the European Parliament together with the Romanian Presidency organised the European Parliamentary Week 2019, on 18 and 19 February 2019, at the European Parliament in Brussels. The European Parliamentary Week brought together Parliamentarians from all over the European Union to discuss economic, budgetary and social matters. The event consists of the European Semester Conference and the Interparliamentary Conference on Stability, Economic Coordination and Governance in the European Union.

The European Semester Conference provides an opportunity to exchange information on best practices in implementing the Semester cycles, and to strengthen cooperation in order to scrutinise the actions of the executives at national and European levels within the framework of the European Semester.

The Interparliamentary Conference on Stability, Economic Coordination and Governance in the European Union [Article 13 Conference of the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union (Fiscal Compact)] provides a framework for debate and exchange of information and best practices in implementing the provisions of the Treaty and aims to strengthen cooperation between national Parliaments and the European Parliament. The Conference also contributes to ensuring democratic accountability in the area of economic governance and budgetary policy in the EU, particularly in the European Monetary Union, taking into account the social dimension and without prejudice to the competences of national Parliaments and the European Parliament.
