This report describes the monetary and exchange rate policies of the euro area and the euro area stability programs.

The paper provides a preliminary review of the SPs, assesses the previous fiscal developments, and analyzes the medium-term prospects implied by the new SPs. The study describes the revised stability program and also the past and prospective fiscal adjustment in the euro area as a whole and at the disaggregated level.
