From budgeting practices to examining financial accounting practices and EPSAS: The CEFG Group on its way to the harmonisation of public sector finances.

Dedicated to creating a space for mutual learning in the field of economic and financial governance, the City Council of Barcelona initiated a high-level strategic partnership together with the cities of Dublin (IE), Hamburg (DE), London (UK), Milan (IT) and Vienna (AT) – the “City Economic and Financial Governance Group (CEFG Group)”. This group unites larger European cities that aim at a different way of doing politics – politics that are committed to quality management, sustainability and liquidity of public sector finances as guarantors of Europe’s economic competitiveness, its social policies and thus ultimately the wellbeing of their citizens.

This timely initiative is managed by EIPA and supported by the European Commission –Eurostat – as it coincides with their efforts to formulate the ESA and EPSAS and to implement them across the EU. Read more

The second meeting of the CEFG Group will take place on 17-18 November in Barcelona under the topic of ‘financial accounting practices and EPSAS’
