ECB informed the Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON), Roberto Gualtieri, about its decision, in line with the Inter-institutional Agreement between the ECB and the European Parliament. ECB also informed the president of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council, Hartwig Löger.
