European Fiscal Monitor

The European Fiscal Monitor will be published twice a year and involves contributions from individual EU IFIs (or fiscal councils) on the main events and challenges in the economies, public finances and fiscal frameworks of EU member states. The aim of the publication is to provide the IFIs with a platform to convey their key messages to an international audience interested in national budgetary matters. Each individual entry in the European Fiscal Monitor is the sole responsibility of the respective national IFI.
