With the establishment of the single bank supervisor, troubled banks in the euro zone could be bailed out directly in stead of through their governments. The banking supervision will \"uncover and correct\" distortions in the national banking sector, so that they would not stretched to the eurozone, Merkel said. The Chancellor also praised German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble for enforcing German \"core demands\". Under the bank supervision agreement, banks with assets over 30 billion euros (about 39 billion U.S. dollars) or those that represent 20 percent of their national economies will be placed under the direct oversight of the ECB, which can also supervise any other bank it wants within those countries that have agreed to be come under its orbit. This means small banks in Germany and other countries will remain under the supervision of their own finance authorities unless they face potential problems. Merkel is set to fly to Brussels for a fresh EU summit later on Thursday. The Chancellor also called for increasing EU\'s competitiveness through a stronger economic policy coordination, warning that losses of competitiveness of one country could cause problems for the whole EU. \"It is absolutely necessary for the strengthening of economic policy coordination at the very beginning,\" she said.
