François Villeroy de Galhau French Central Bank Governor

Le pilier monétaire existe et il est solide, la BCE fait son travail. Ce qui manque terriblement est le second pilier, une meilleure coordination des politiques économiques. C'est pourquoi je propose la nomination d'un ministre des Finances européen. Depuis 2011, l'absence de gouvernance a coûté 2 à 5 points de PIB à l'eurozone et donc des millions d'emplois

Vítor Constâncio Vice President of the European Central Bank

L’idée de désigner un ministre des finances est très récente et probablement, liée au fait qu’il faut établir de telles fonctions au niveau central de la zone euro de manière à avoir quelqu’un qui soit responsable de la gestion des nouvelles tâches et de la stabilisation de l’Union monétaire.

Emmanuel Macron French President

[We need] deeper integration between eurozone states, including a real eurozone budget [and a] a permanent finance minister who leads this executive. This is a democratic responsibility on the eurozone level, and as such it requires maximum ambition

Jean-Claude Juncker President of the @EU_Commission

The European Union [note: not only the Eurozone] should have a minister of economy and finance. Such a minister should also be the chairman of all euro zone finance ministers and be accountable to the European Parliament.

Quite a large number of ministers feel that to complement our toolkit with a fiscal capacity as a stabilization tool would be useful

Reza Moghadam Economist and Vice-chairman for sovereigns and official institutions at Morgan Stanley

Macron is right - the Eurozone needs a finance minister. [...] it focuses on the essential: a collective action mechanism for managing and stabilising economies in crisis. It also does so without the need for EU Treaty changes

Guntram Wolff Director of Brussels-based think tank Bruegel

A European finance minister — as Juncker outlined it — is a misnomer that will create false expectations and confusion. […] It would be unwise to create totally new euro area institutions beyond the ESM that would only aggravate the division between countries inside the euro area and those outside.
