In addition to reviewing the latest short-term indicators and the development of the economic recovery in the European economies in the second half of the year, we will discuss the implementation of the European banking union and its impact on the outlook. In response to the Euro Area debt crisis, European governments agreed to create a banking union. This step in the integration of Euro Area economies is intended to advance the economic and monetary union. By strengthening the financial sector, banking union reforms are expected to lead to a better functioning financial sector support in the real economy. We will review the latest developments and the implications for the business environment in the coming years.
