The EURO is turning 20 – What comes next? This year, the euro will be celebrating its 20th birthday. On January 1, 1999, stage three of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) began with the irrevocable fixing of exchange rates. Although we have experienced difficult times in recent years, it is safe to say: The euro has been a big success. The Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB), the ECB, and other NCBs will be celebrating this anniversary in different ways. But we also want to look ahead. What’s the future of the euro, especially in the context of our fast-changing world, growing digitalization, and the rise of so-called crypto-currencies? Will we still have a common currency in the future? Will there still be cash? Or will the ECB have its own eEuro? We are looking forward to an interesting discussion with first-hand inputs from our experts.
