The latest OECD Economic Surveys of the European Union and Euro Area, to be published on Tuesday 19 June, assess the state of the European economy as well as the policies and reforms that can help ensure strong, sustainable and inclusive growth as the European project moves forward.

The European Union Survey looks at how to ensure a greater integration of European economies, notably through more efficient cohesion policies, a reformed EU budget and completing the single market. The Euro Area Survey discusses reforms to buttress the Monetary Union, including completion of the banking union, establishment of a common fiscal capacity and revisiting fiscal rules.

The Surveys will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 9:00 CET (7:00 CET) on Tuesday 19 June for immediate release.

OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the Surveys in Brussels on Tuesday 19 June, first during a public exchange with the Economics Committee of the European Parliament, from 9-10 a.m., then during a lunchtime seminar hosted by Bruegel, starting at 12:30 local time (rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels). At Bruegel, Mr Gurría will be joined by Pierre Beynet, head of the OECD Economics Department division responsible for the EU and Euro Area, OECD senior economist Aida Caldera-Sanchez and OECD economist Jan Strasky. The seminar will be moderated by Bruegel senior fellow Zsolt Darvas.

An Overview of the Economic Survey, with the main conclusions, will be freely accessible on the OECD website.
