The Netherlands has published the national work programme for its Council Presidency for 1 January to 30 June. Aspects of the Presidency’s four key priorities relevant to financial services include:

  • progressing the proposals for the European deposit insurance scheme and other measures to complete the Banking Union;
  • working on the Capital Markets Union plan, including potentially completing the two proposed Regulations on securitisations;
  • hosting the trilogue negotiations on bank structural reform; and
  • reacting to the proposal the Commission is expected to put forward for recovery and resolution of central counterparties (CCPs).
