Prof. Roel Beetsma, MN Professor of Pension Economics at the University of Amsterdam, has been appointed a member of the European Commission’s European Fiscal Board (EFB). This recently established advisory body will focus on the budgetary policy of EU member states.
As an advisory body, the EFB’s tasks include monitoring the correct application of the European Commission’s Stability and Growth Pact and issuing opinions on budgetary policy at the Eurozone and national level. In total the Board consists of four other members coming from Denmark, Italy, France and Poland. The EFB will commence its duties shortly.
