The Stability Treaty Ratification Map Update - 27-Nov-2012

27 Nov 2012

France and Estonia are the latest countries to ratify the Fiscal Stability Treaty and Slovakia is due to follow suit this week. A number of other countries have started or made progress, leaving only Bulgaria, Finland, Hungary and Sweden yet to begin the process. According to a report prepared for the European Parliament’s Constitutional Affairs Committee meeting on 26 November 2012, the ratification procedure has been completed in fifteen Member States (of which twelve are Eurozone countries), although the final formal step of depositing the instruments of ratification with the Council of the European Union has only been carried out by twelve Member States (of which eight are Eurozone countries). It now appears likely that the required twelve Eurozone countries will deposit the instruments of ratification by the end of the year, allowing the Fiscal Stability Treaty to come into force on 1 January 2013 as planned.
