The European integration project is currently undergoing one of the most challenging periods in its 60-year history. The Brexit vote is creating large political and economic uncertainties. Growth is still sluggish across the continent, while debt and unemployment have settled at high levels in many parts of the eurozone. Political leadership in Europe is weakened by the rise of populists and non-traditional parties.
The ad hoc stabilization measures of the past years will not suffice to protect the euro against further crises and bring the eurozone back on a sustainable growth path. A wait-and-see approach is both economically expensive and politically dangerous. If we want the common currency to deliver stability, economic growth and political strength, we need to prepare and reform the euro area now.
To this end, a high-level working group has brought together the best reform ideas and translated them into a comprehensive reform strategy in three building blocks: i) a first aid kit for the euro area; ii) reforms and investment for growth; iii) risk sharing and sovereignty sharing.
