Summary:

Communication published by the European Commission on 19 January 2021, setting out a strategy aimed at stimulating the openness, strength and resilience of the economic and financial system of the European Union (EU).

Further information:

It aims at better enabling the EU to play a leading role in global economic governance, while protecting itself from unfair and abusive practices. It goes hand-in-hand with the commitment to a more resilient and open global economy, well-functioning international financial markets and the rules-based multilateral system. The proposed approach is based on three pillars:

  • Promoting a stronger international role of the euro;
  • Further developing EU financial market infrastructures and improving their resilience;
  • Further promoting the uniform implementation and enforcement of the EU's own sanctions.

This strategy builds on the Commission's 2018 Communication on the International Role of the Euro and acknowledges the economic recovery plan first announced by the Communication on the Next Generation EU.
