    The ECB set the interest rate for the Eurozone area (plus other things) and EMU implies Economic and Monetary union, whereby the creation of a single market by getting rid of artificial barriers and other non-tariff barriers and Monetary union is about having a single currency between member states or fixing of exchange rates to achieve stability and low inflation and long term interest rates.

    If your doing the a-level economics exam in it, you also need to know the + ve and - ve of EMU..e.g. reduced transaction costs etc etc...
