EMMANUEL MACRON’S proposed European Union reforms could give rise to a fresh wave of euroscepticism across the Continent if they fail, according to a leading expert.
The French President has suggested a host of “colourful ideas” of how the EU should be changing, including the installation of a Eurozone finance minister, but faces tough opposition from across the bloc to implement them, according to Open Europe policy analyst Leopold Traugott.
The so-called Franco-German motor behind the EU has been faltering of late, with cooperation between the two nations not living up to expectations. After a meeting with German Chancellor, Mr Macron admit his pro-European reforms cannot be enacted without the help of Berlin. As well as an EU-wide finance minister, other reforms include a joint Eurozone budget and and institute to oversee the entire bloc’s economic policy.
