So far, we can say that although the euro area has resisted even more than some of its critics believed, this does not make it invulnerable. In the context of current major macroeconomic imbalances, nominal convergence problem has received many analyzes and reflections. Insufficiency of the Maastricht criteria to reflect the ability of European Union Member States in achieving the economic development required by the EMU integration and also in compliance with strict fiscal and monetary policy governing its operation, is the primary consideration of the intention to highlight some of their critical aspects.
