EU Commission publish communication on developing the Capital Markets Union (CMU)

The EU Commission has published a statement on developing the CMU. In the communication, the Commission
outlines the CMU’s objectives.

From this a number of conclusions may be drawn:

  • the European Commission has now delivered the measures it committed to at the beginning of its CMU action plan and in the mid-term review to put in place the building blocks of the CMU
  • the European Commission has worked closely with the European Parliament and the European Council to make considerable progress on many proposals
  • while the European Commission’s action has already started to have an effect, it will take some time for the full impact to be felt on the ground
  • future action will need to reflect the impact on capital markets of the UK’s departure from the EU and other short or medium-term economic and societal challenges

 

The European Council is invited by the European Commission to renew its commitment to the CMU and endorse efforts within the communication for its next strategic agenda.
