Mission statement

Finance ministers from the euro area countries meet every month in the Eurogroup to discuss issues that are of shared interest because they use a single currency. Over the next two years their discussions will focus on financial stability, sustainable growth and job creation.

In particular, developing the banking union will help to increase financial stability within the euro area. Investment by governments and companies will encourage economic activity and job creation. Ensuring sound and growth-friendly fiscal policy in line with the eurozone's rules (the Stability and Growth Pact) makes the euro area economy more stable.

We also need structural economic reform to unlock productive capacity, particularly in areas such as labour and product markets. 

Progress in all these areas will give everyone, especially young people, the chance to prosper, and will secure the European social model for the future.
