The Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the EU has published its work programme for the period from 1 July to 31 December 2015.
The priorities of the new Luxembourg Presidency include:
- a proposal to ensure transparent, simple and high-quality securitisation in order to revitalise a market that has not yet regained its pre-crisis levels and to address the risks associated with securitisation;
- a review of the Prospectus Directive requirements in order to facilitate access to capital markets for SMEs;
- advancing negotiations on a range of issues, in particular with regard to the banking structural reform; and
- seeking to launch negotiations on a new legislative proposal regarding the resolution of market infrastructures.
