Report by the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker - in close cooperation with the heads of the European Council, Eurogroup, European Central Bank (ECB) and European Parliament - published in June 2015 to set out a plan on deepening the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and how to complete it by 2025.

Further information:

This Report builds on the so-called Four Presidents' Report and on the European Commission's Blueprint for a Deep and Genuine EMU. It sets out three stages through which the EMU should be strengthened in the forthcoming years. It focuses on the Euro Area, as countries that share a currency face specific common challenges, interests and responsibilities. The process towards a deeper EMU is nonetheless deemed open to all Members States. It reflects the personal deliberations and discussions between the five Presidents.
