In this speech Pierre Moscovici, EU Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs, will set out his political priorities for the coming year.
2018 will see key decisions by EU leaders on the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union, further moves to boost tax transparency and reform corporate taxation in the wake of the Paradise Papers, and the conclusion of Greece’s financial assistance programme after more than seven years.
In facing these challenges, Moscovici warns that the war against nationalists and anti-European populists is far from over.
