Economic relevance

The European Union is the 2nd largest economy in the world, between the United States of America and China, comprising a single market across the territory of all its 27 member countries that represents 512 million citizens. From these countries, 19 member states have joined a monetary union known as the eurozone, which uses the euro as a single currency. As a result, nowadays the euro is the second largest reserve currency as well as the second most traded currency in the world after the United States dollar (USD).
