Understanding the budgetary Pact
Understanding the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governace,
known as the « Budgetary Pact »
The Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance (TSCG), better known as the European budgetary pact, signed on 2nd March 2012 in Brussels by the heads of State and government of 25 Member States of the European Union (all except for the UK and Czech Republic) entered into force on 1st January 2013. Actually, it was decided that it would enter into force once 12 euro zone Member States have ratified it. Since 21st December 2012, it has been the case. Since 7th March 2013, it has been ratified by 19 of them (including 13 in the euro zone).
