Description

Two decades ago, euro notes and coins entered into circulation, bringing tangible benefits to people and companies across the EU.

The single currency has made it easier for people to compare prices across borders, to shop and travel and to make savings in a stable currency. It also opened up more opportunities for businesses, as the costs and uncertainty of dealing with fluctuating exchange rates disappeared.

The February 2022 plenary session started with a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Euro, followed by a debate with ECB President Lagarde.
