Our Union

The European Union is a success story that is unique in the world. For many decades now, Europeans have enjoyed the abundant benefits that the internal market, monetary union and customs union bring. The coronavirus crisis is teaching us that we must protect these achievements and that our measures to overcome the crisis must be combined with clear steps towards greater integration and European sovereignty. This includes pressing forward with further integration in the banking union, the capital markets union, and a union for digital financial markets.
