Economic and Monetary Union
Event date: 22/03/2018
Economic and monetary union (EMU) is the result of progressive economic integration, and is therefore not an end in itself. The management of EMU is designed to support sustainable economic growth and high employment through appropriate economic and monetary policymaking.
This involves three main economic activities: implementing monetary policy with the objective of price stability; coordinating economic policies in Member States; and ensuring the smooth operation of the single market.
