We advise and help Kosovo achieve political stability and democracy on the basis of the rule of law. The Stability and Growth Pact (PSC) is an agreement between the 27 member states of the European Union to facilitate and maintain the stability of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). It is based mainly on Articles 121 and 126[1] of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and consists of the tax supervision of members by the European Commission and the Council of Ministers and an annual recommendation on policy measures to ensure full compliance with the Stability and Growth Pact, including in the medium term. If a Member State fails to meet the ceiling set by the Stability and Growth Pact for public deficits and debt, monitoring and demanding corrective measures will be intensified by the declaration of an excessive deficit procedure (EDP); and if these remedial measures continue to fail as a result of multiple warnings, economic sanctions may ultimately be imposed on the Member State. [2] The pact was described in July 1997 by a resolution and two Council regulations. [3] The first regulation on strengthening control of fiscal positions and monitoring and coordinating economic policies, known as the “preventive component,” came into force on 1 July 1998. [4] The second regulation “to speed up and clarify the implementation of the excessive deficit procedure,” known as the “deterrent arm,” came into force on 1 January 1999. [5] The successful combination of development-oriented emergency aid and technical cooperation contributes to the stability of the country and hence to sustainable development. Although political stability has improved in recent years, the country is marked by the consequences of conflict. When a “minimum MTO” is recalculated for a country, the announcement of a “nationally selected MTO” corresponding to or greater than the recalculated “minimum MTO” is made as part of the following regular stability/convergence ratio, with the account (s) taking effect only in the years following the notification of the new “nationally selected MTO”. The tables below list all MFOs by countries selected by national governments in 2005-2015 and coloured in red/green each year to indicate whether the “nationally selected MTO” was achieved in accordance with the recent revision of structural data calculated using the European Commission`s method.
