Bilderberg dominated committee to set up the Euro

Not to be confused with the Delors commission

The Delors committee was a Bilderberg-run project to advance the creation of European monetary union.

Activities

The report of the 1989 Bilderberg records that “The Delors Committee took on the responsibility of studying and proposing concrete steps toward the objective of a progressive realization of monetary union of the member states of the E.C. Such a union is desirable because it will enable us to take advantage of all the potential of the single market, to deal with uncertainties of rates of exchange, and to reduce costs. The Delors Committee did not set out to do an academic study but to respond to the very precise terms of reference of the Council of Ministers. The definition of monetary union chosen by the committee was the definition of the Werner Report of 1970, which said that monetary union was characterized by the total convertibility of the currencies, by free movement of capital, and by certain exchange rates that are irreversibly fixed.” [1]
