The EG+ meeting will cover two subjects: features of the budgetary instrument for convergence and competitiveness – focus on governance aspects and the roadmap for beginning political discussions on EDIS.
Later in the day, The EU Finance ministers, joined by the Governors of Central Banks from EU Member States, will tackle topics like priorities for the next institutional cycle and the way forward for the Capital Markets Union.

The agenda of the second day of the Informal Ecofin, Saturday 6 April, would not be lighter either, as it covers topics from workforce mobility in the EU, taxation issues, to common EU positions for the Washington G20 and IMF meetings.
