Achtergrond

This conference provides the Commission and the ECB with the opportunity to share and discuss their views on the integration and stability of the financial markets with policy makers, regulators, academics and representatives of private financial institutions. This annual event is organised alternatively in Frankfurt and in Brussels.

The Commission's 2009 "European Financial Integration Report" focused on the financial crisis and the first signs of recovery. It analyses the impact of the crisis on EU financial integration and provides a background to the EU's reform agenda for building a stronger financial system together with its major international partners.

The ECB's 2010 "Financial Integration in Europe" report focuses on issues related to the ECB's core tasks and on developments relating to the euro area; the state of play of financial integration and its relationship with integration and supervisory reform, post-trading, stability and Eurosystem activities.

Europese Commissie (EC)

Deze instelling van de Europese Unie kan worden beschouwd als het 'dagelijks bestuur' van de EU. De leden van de Europese Commissie worden 'Eurocommissarissen i' genoemd. Elke Eurocommissaris is verantwoordelijk voor één of meerdere beleidsgebieden. Momenteel zijn er 27 Eurocommissarissen, voor elke lidstaat één. Samen vormen zij het college van Eurocommissarissen. De Eurocommissarissen moeten het belang van de Europese Unie als geheel behartigen, niet dat van hun eigen land.

De Europese Commissie mag als enige EU-instelling wetsvoorstellen indienen; zij heeft het zogenaamde recht van initatief. Daarnaast controleert de Commissie of de Europese wetgeving juist wordt toegepast in de lidstaten, onderhandelt zij in internationale organisaties als de Wereldhandelsorganisatie (WTO) i over de handel van de Unie met het 'buitenland' en is zij verantwoordelijk voor het beheer van de Europese begroting van ongeveer 140 miljard euro per jaar.
