In his speech President and Minister of Finance, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, described the Eurozone as a community with solidarity among its members and an understanding of each other’s responsibilities. The euro crisis has put this community to the test. Doubts were raised about member states’ commitment to the rights and obligations within a monetary union.

The work on the future design of the system is ongoing.
