The latest news and developments of the European City Economic and Financial Governance (CEFG) Group are now publicly accessible at

As previously explained, this strategic high-level group led by the City of Barcelona (ES), unites the Cities of Dublin (IE), Hamburg (DE), the City of London (UK), Milan (IT) and Vienna (AT) to create a space for mutual learning and benchmarking in the field of economic and financial governance. By exploring the harmonisation of public financial management and accounting practices, this group aims for a significant leap towards transparency, accountability and sustainability of public finances, and consequently for a change of politics towards becoming a guarantor of Europe’s economic competitiveness, its social policies and thus ultimately the wellbeing of its citizens.
