It conducts preparatory negotiations on issues that are more economic, monetary or financial in nature and thus require the specific competence of these particular ministers. The level below this is of a mixed nature between political and technical dimensions and deals with the preparation of the ECOFIN meetings as well as the drafting of the relevant texts.
