Estimated schedule

Agenda highlights

The Eurogroup meeting will take place in two formats - the first part will be a regular meeting of the euro area ministers, starting at 15.00, while the second part will be a meeting of the ministers of 27 EU member states, starting at 17.30.

15.00 Eurogroup meeting in regular format

Greece: economic adjustment programme

The Eurogroup will be informed of the progress achieved in implementing the remaining prior actions under the third review of the Greece's economic adjustment programme. Full implementation of the prior actions is a precondition for the disbursement of the next tranche of financial assistance available under the ESM programme.

Ireland: post-programme surveillance

The Eurogroup will be informed on the key findings of the 8th post-programme surveillance mission to Ireland, which took place from 28 November to 1 December 2017.

Post-programme surveillance (PPS) is carried out by the European Commission in liaison with the European Central Bank. PPS missions are usually coordinated with the International Monetary Fund and the European Stability Mechanism.

The aim of PPS is to establish any possible risks to the country's ability to repay its outstanding loans received under its adjustment programme that was concluded in end-2013. The surveillance continues until at least 75% of the loan has been repaid.

European Stability Mechanism reform

Ministers are expected to exchange views on how to bring forward the debate on the reform of the European Stability Mechanism. This debate is part of the wider discussion on the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union.

Appointment of the Vice-President of the European Central Bank

The Eurogroup will discuss the applications received for the upcoming vacancy of the Vice-President of the European Central Bank.

17:30 Eurogroup meeting in inclusive format

Banking union: the way forward

The finance ministers of 27 EU member states will discuss the progress in implementing the ECOFIN Council roadmap for the banking union which was agreed in June 2016, and its further development.

Eurogroep

De Eurogroep bestaat uit de ministers van Financiën van de landen die de euro als nationale munteenheid hebben ingevoerd (de eurozone). Dit samenwerkingsverband heeft als doel de coördinatie van economisch beleid binnen de muntunie te versterken en de financiële stabiliteit van de eurolanden te bevorderen. Het is strikt genomen een informeel orgaan en geen formatie van de Raad.

De Eurogroep bereidt ook de bijeenkomsten voor van de Eurotop, die bestaat uit de staatshoofden en de regeringsleiders van de eurolanden, en zorgt voor de uitwerking van de besluiten die daarin worden genomen.
