On 26 April 2023, the Commission presented legislative proposals to implement a comprehensive reform of the EU’s economic governance rules. The central objective of these proposals is to strengthen public debt sustainability while promoting sustainable and inclusive growth in Member States through reforms and investment. The ECON Committee is now assessing the proposals by the Commission and working on its reports.

To enrich the debate, a public hearing on "New Economic Governance Rules fit for the Future" took place in the ECON Committee on Wednesday 20 September, from 16:30 to 18:30. Four experts were invited to provide input:
  • Olivier Blanchard (Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute),
  • Philippa Sigl-Gloeckner (Director of Dezernat Zukunft),
  • Sander Tordoir (Senior Economist at the Centre for European Reform) and
  • Jeromin Zettelmeyer (Director of Bruegel).
