The completion of the single market (free movement of people, services, capital and goods) is one of the EU's major achievements, 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 barriers persist. The Services Directive was introduced precisely to remove all barriers to trade in the intra-European services.

With the aim of facilitating 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 foundations of the Single European market is the Economic and Monetary Union. Five European institutions, led by the European Central Bank, define the EU Monetary Policy, the issue of euro as well as the mechanisms of price stabilisation 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 third countries.
