Euromarket

What is the 'Euromarket'

The euromarket is the market that includes all of the European Union member countries - many of which use the same currency, the euro. All tariffs between Euromarket member countries have been abolished, and import duties from all non-member countries have been fixed for all of the member countries. The Euromarket also has one central bank for all of the member countries, the European Central Bank (ECB).

Also known as "the common market".

BREAKING DOWN 'Euromarket'

The Euromarket is a large single market comprised of all member countries, allowing for more efficient trade and the centralization of monetary policy through the ECB. The Euromarket is considered a major finance source for international trade, through the money market or eurocurrency, eurocredit and eurobonds.
