    Economic policy, EU Budget, taxation, and sustainable finance in the European Union

    In this public event organised on 5 February 2019 in Madrid, we are looking to kick-start a debate on the principle features of the European Union economy, its current state and governance, taking into account the present and perspectives for the future, as well as the economic policies related to macroeconomics, taxation and finance.

    The Spanish economy will be discussed using a European perspective, framed by the economic situation and European policy.

    Organized jointly by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the Representation of the European Commission in Spain, the intention is to create a dialogue between representatives of civil society, the Spanish government and academia.
