Europeiska ekonomiska samarbetsområdet (EES) samlar EU:s medlemsstater och de tre Eftastaterna i EES (Island, Liechtenstein och Norge) i en inre marknad som styrs av gemensamma grundläggande regler. Dessa regler syftar till att varor, tjänster, kapital och människor ska kunna röra sig fritt inom EES i en öppen och konkurrensutsatt miljö. Avtalet om Europeiska ekonomiska samarbetsområdet trädde i kraft den 1 januari 1994.

Rådgivande EES-kommittén ingår i EES avtalet (artikel 96) och inrättades 1994.

    EESC opinion: Euro area economic policy 2024
  • In its opinion on the Euro area's economic policy for 2021, the European Economic and Social Committee welcomes the Commission's recommendations, but calls for a shift in fiscal rules towards a more prosperity-oriented form of economic governance, including a golden rule for public investment.

  • The European Economic Area Consultative Committee (EEA CC) held on 18 September 2020 its 28th annual meeting to discuss two resolutions linked to the implementation of the Green Deal initiative and the EU’s New Industrial Strategy. The members of the EEA CC, which represents employers, workers, and other civil society players of EEA member states, agreed on the need to extend the Green Deal to the entire EEA to achieve a more sustainable single market.

    • European Green Deal must lead to more economic prosperity and convergence
    • Sustainable growth must be a top priority
    • Measures to close the investment gap are essential
  • The EESC draws forward-looking conclusions from the 2019 Semester and the Committee's civil society consultations in the Member States

  • At its plenary session in July, the European Economic and Social Committee presented proposals for the economic agenda of the upcoming legislative period (2019-2024) and recommended that they should form the basis of a new European economic strategy. The Committee's proposals seek to develop more resilient and sustainable EU economic policies within an improved governance framework for the Economic and Monetary Union.

    The 25th anniversary of the European Economic Area (EEA) Agreement, in force since 1994, was the main topic of the EEA Consultative Committee meeting that took place on 23 and 24 May. This committee, which represents employers, workers and other civil society players of EEA member states, insisted on the importance of completing the internal market and taking into account its social dimension.

  • The euro ranks second in the world as a reserve currency and as a currency used for fixed income securities issues and international trade transactions. However, its use internationally has yet to return to levels before the financial crisis, and its future role in the international monetary system is tied to the economic prospects of the euro area.

  • Javier Doz Orrit
    • Economic resilience and labour market resilience must go hand in hand
    • Commitment to deepening EMU through stabilisation and upward convergence is crucial
    • Urging Member States into contractionary fiscal stances may be problematic
