PES Economic and Financial Network

schieder.png

The PES Economic and Financial Network meets twice a year, and is a well-established forum of discussion within the PES family. The network brings together experts and representatives from PES Member Parties, the S&D Group, FEPS, and our other social partners. It allows for in-depth discussions on specific policy topics that can reinforce, deepen and expand the policies that we carry forward as a political family.

Recent items debated at network meetings include: the European Investment Plan, the financial reform, and the coordination of economic and fiscal policy in the Eurozone.
