The Commission for Economic Policy (ECON) coordinates ECON members' input on issues related to economic and industrial policy, such as competition and State Aid policy, public procurement, SME policy and entrepreneurship, economic governance and the European Semester, Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the internal market and the digital single market. Its activities also encompass economic and monetary policy, taxation policy, international trade and tariffs (including WTO issues) and local/regional finances.
The ECON secretariat is also responsible for the European Entrepreneurial Regions (EER) award scheme, which rewards EU regions with the most credible, forward-thinking and promising vision and innovative entrepreneurial policy strategy.
ECON is in charge of the Network of Regional Hubs for EU policy Implementation Review (RegHub). RegHub is a platform that involves local and regional actors through consultations and collects their experiences on EU policy implementation.
ECON manages the Broadband Platform, which is a joint initiative between the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the European Commission to help high-speed broadband reach all European regions.
ECON also plays a leading and coordinating role in relations between the CoR and the European Investment Bank (EIB) Group, which span a broad range of actions and policy fields.
The main analyses and consultations carried out by the Monitoring Platform on Europe 2020 and the European Semester are available via our archive page.
