ECOFIN Council Roundup : Lithuania takes a major step toward joining the eurozone next year


At a meeting in Luxembourg, today, EU economics and finance ministers agreed the Baltic states met the necessary conditions to start using the single currency on January the first. Lithuanians’ hopes of becoming the 19th member of the Eurozone could be realized if the endorsements is also given by EU leaders at this summit, on June 27. The ministers also approved an amendment to stop cross-border companies from exploiting a tax loophole. The amendment will counter so-called doubled non taxation of corporate groups involving hybrid loan arrangements. The loophole could enable them to exploit mismatches between national tax rules and avoid paying taxes on certain kinds of profits. In other items of the agenda, the ministers approved the recommendations to help bolster the national reform programs of 26 EU countries and on the economic policies of the euro area. The move is part of the European semester process, a cycle that helps EU member states balance their budgets and improve their fiscal and economic policies.

Invité des Petits déjeuners européens de l’Ena, Jean-Louis GUIGOU, Délégué général de l’Institut de Prospective Économique du Monde Méditerranéen (IPEMED), relève qu’une meilleure coopération entre les deux rives de la Méditerranée paraît aujourd’hui essentielle. Mais, si elle veut véritablement fonctionner, elle ne devra pas se faire sur la base des traditionnels accords de libre-échange - un postulat, selon lui, «périmé» - mais en s’appuyant sur la notion de «colocalisation».
