The current financial and economic crisis constitutes a unique challenge to the economic and financial governance of the European Union. While economic and fiscal policies remain national competencies of the Member States, they exercise them within an EU system of non-discrimination, solidarity and mutual co-ordination, with fifteen of the Member States sharing a common currency and monetary policy.
