Our mission is to contribute to raising the economic welfare of the citizens in the European Union and beyond, notably by developing and promoting policies that ensure sustainable economic growth, high employment rates, and financial stability.
The Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs (DG ECFIN) is made up civil servants from across the 28 countries of the EU and beyond. This team includes experts in policy, administration and communication. Our mission is to improve the economic wellbeing of EU citizens through policies designed to promote sustainable economic growth, high employment rates, and financial stability.
We do economic analysis, lead discussion on economic issues with EU countries and prepare legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member states countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens) on economic and financial matters. DG ECFIN reports to Pierre Moscovici, the Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs.
