Agenda highlights

The Eurogroup will first meet in regular format at 15h and come together for a Eurogroup meeting in inclusive format at 16h.

Regular format

Post-programme surveillance: Ireland and Portugal

The European Commission and the ECB will brief ministers on the main findings of the 10th post-programme surveillance mission to Ireland carried out between 13-16 November 2018 and on the 9th post-programme surveillance mission to Portugal carried out between 26-30 November 2018.

Post-programme surveillance (PPS) starts automatically after the end of financial assistance programmes and continues until at least 75% of loans received have been repaid. PPS is biannual in terms of reporting and missions.

Election of a new ECB Executive Board member

The Eurogroup will discuss the nomination for the upcoming vacancy at the ECB . Following the call for applications at the January Eurogroup meeting, the President of the Eurogroup received one candidature. Ireland put forward its Central Bank Governor Philip Lane to succeed Peter Praet, whose term of office expires on 31 May.

Commission's winter interim forecast

The Eurogroup will discuss the economic situation and outlook for the euro area, on the basis of the Commission's winter forecast.

Inclusive format

Deepening EMU - way forward on the budgetary instrument for convergence and competitiveness

Following the mandate received by EU leaders at the 14 December Euro Summit, the Eurogroup in inclusive format will continue to discuss the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union.

Ministers will hold a first exchange of views on the way forward regarding the budgetary instrument for convergence and competitiveness for the euro area and ERM II member states on a voluntary basis.



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.
