Prof. Laurent Sermet, University Aix-en-Provence, France gives a presentation on the French stance on EMU reforms with ensuing debate.
The election of Emmanuel Macron has re-awakened the hope that the European Union could start with the outstanding reforms in particular in the field of the economic and monetary union. Recalling his keynote speech in September 2017, calling for creating a Eurozone budget, a Eurozone-finance minister and a European tax as financing source, Prof. Sermet gives us insight about the political and legal perception of President Macron’s initiatives in France.
