Debriefing: European Parliament on a Financial Transaction Tax


The European Parliament adopted this week the ”Podimata report” which, among others, asks for the introduction of a EU-wide tax on financial transactions. According to the report, the amount collected by this tax would raise to almost 200 billion euros per year. While the report as a whole was adopted with a comfortable majority, one provision in particular brought fierce disagreement between the left and the right: whether the EU should go ahead with this tax before its international partners do so.

In this event, the two protagonists of the discussion at the European Parliament; MEP Anni Podimati, Rapporteur, and MEP Danuta Hubner, Shadow Rapporteur, will meet CEPS experts and the questions of the public.

This is a joint CEPS/ECMI-VoteWatch.eu monthly debriefing. Registration starts at 12.30.
