Publications of the European Central Bank
ECB Economic Bulletin
The Economic Bulletin presents the economic and monetary information which forms the basis for the ECB Governing Council's policy decisions.
It is released eight times a year, two weeks after each monetary policy meeting. In particular, the Bulletins in March, June, September and December provide additionally, the macroeconomic projections of the ECB Eurosystem staff on inflation, growth, public finances figures and external trade. The Bank of Greece thus fulfills its obligation under Article 15.1 of the Statute of the ESCB to publish reports on the activities of the ESCB at least quarterly. The remaining issues of the Economic Bulletin appear only in English. Note that in 2015 the Monthly Bulletin was replaced by the ECB Economic Bulletin.
ECB - Annual Report
The Annual Report describes the tasks and activities of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) and reports on the Eurosystem’s monetary policy.
It is usually published in April of the following year and is presented by one of the ECB’s Executive Board members to the European Parliament at a public hearing.
The Annual Report includes the Annual Accounts of the ECB. These are also published as a separate document several weeks before the Annual Report.
ECB - Convergence Report
A Convergence Report is published at least once every two years or at the request of an EU Member State which would like to join the euro area.
Both the ECB and the European Commission issue these reports describing the progress made by non-euro area Member States towards achieving the criteria necessary for a country to adopt the euro.
ECB Annual Report on supervisory activities
Every year the ECB publishes an annual report on how it has carried out its supervisory tasks. The report is usually published in March of the following year.
The Chair of the Supervisory Board of the ECB presents the report to the European Parliament at a public hearing.
