Majority of euro zone members want common budget - French FinMin

BERLIN, Oct 26 (Reuters) - A majority of euro zone countries favour the single currency area adopting a fiscal capacity, or common budget, French Finance Minister Brune Le Maire said on Friday.

“There is a real change in the eurogroup and within the EU. A clear majority now support such a capacity,” he said after meeting German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz in Berlin. “Call it a fiscal capacity or a budget, it is the same in the end.”
