Annotation: The study considers the essence and effects of economic integration on the Euro zone banking sector. The study explains that the intensification of economic integration of European countries provides a competitive environment for banks. The results found that the integration at the macro level increases the international competitiveness of the banking sector by creating a more transparent single secure market and increasing its capacity through the application of common rules and administrative standards for banking supervision and resolution, and on the meso- and micro levels increases the international competitiveness of banking institutions by increasing efficiency and profitability by increasing the volume of cross-border banking activities within the Euro zone. The conclusions suggest the main instruments of ECB’s monetary policy have a positive impact on improving the competitiveness of the banking sector by removing barriers to cross-border competition. Such instruments helped to create a large and transparent capital market, increase banking sector competitiveness by intensifying competition and efficiency of banks.
Keywords: economic integration; banking sector competitiveness; integrated financial market; ECB monetary policy.
