(ČIA) At the ECOFIN Council meeting in Luxembourg, EU finance ministers discuss changes to insurance regulation and energy price rises. The Czech Republic supported France's proposal for a joint approach to this problem. The document calls, among other things, for reducing the EU's dependence on energy imports and for greater efforts to achieve energy self-sufficiency by investing in the diversification of local energy sources. It also calls for greater regulation of the market in emission allowances in order to reduce the volatility of energy prices and ensure the predictability of the price of allowances. This was announced by the Ministry of Finance (MF).
