This session will take stock of the progress made during the current legislature on the CMU and of the main issues hindering CMU and discuss the measures that are needed to relaunch the CMU against the backdrop of the different initiatives underway at the EU and domestic levels to deepen the CMU.

Points of discussion

  1. Stock taking: What overall assessment can be made of CMU so far? Are the CMU measures adopted since the initiative was launched likely to have a significant impact in terms of growth and integration of EU capital markets? What are the main issues hindering CMU?
  2. Priorities for the next European political cycle: What should be the main focus of the CMU initiative in the next European political cycle? Is there a need for a change of approach to CMU or to reframe the CMU debate?
