About the sub-committee

Since November 2004 the Economic and Financial Committee’s Sub-Committee on EU Sovereign Debt Markets was mandated by the EFC to aim at promoting further the integration and a better functioning of EU government bond markets thereby impacting positively on the financial markets as a whole. In particular, the EFC Sub-Committee on EU Sovereign Debt Markets has as main tasks to:


  • monitor the EU bond market with a view to promote an efficient functioning of the EU’s primary and secondary government debt markets;
  • review existing barriers to a further integration of EU government securities markets;
  • support Member States in identifying and implementing best practices, including on transparency, through the exchange of information and experiences on both strategic and technical aspects of government debt management; and
  • deal with other important issues of public debt management on an ad hoc basis where necessary.


The Sub-Committee on EU Sovereign Debt Markets reports regularly to the EFC on the main developments and key strategic issues.
