The Single market completion (free movement of people, services, capital and goods) is one of the major achievements of the EU, although the Europe 2020 Strategy has been designed to achieve it fully. For trade in goods, the single market is a reality, but it is not so much for trade in services, where many Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) persist.

The Services Directive was introduced precisely to remove all the trade barriers in the intra-European services.

With the aim of facilitating the online access to products and services and relaunching the European economy, the European Commission published the Strategy for the creation of a European Digital Market.

One of the European Single Market foundations is the Economic and Monetary Union. Five European institutions, led by the European Central Bank, define the EU Monetary Policy, issue of the euro as well as the price stabilisation mechanisms in the euro area.

Any company wishing to do business in the countries of the European Union must know the implications of the Customs Union, especially to analyse the competitiveness of its product related to the third countries.
