Europe's Stability and Growth Pact should be reformed to give it more built-in room for countercyclical fiscal policy, the head of the Dutch central bank said in a speech Friday, with the European Commission set to relaunch its review of the bloc's fiscal rules after Germany's general election on September 26.
