Description of the Subject - The European Single Market (EU):

One of the greatest achievements of the European Union has been the completion of the single market. In the European Single Market (EU) there are no internal borders and therefore the principle of free movement of people, services, capital and goods applies.

The creation of the European Single Market has entailed profound structural changes in the economies of the EU member states: elimination of monopolies, technical barriers, liberalisation of markets... The EU has issued a number of rules that the member countries have had to incorporate into their legislation.

  1. The European Single Market has eliminated the customs duties and quantitative restrictions
  2. The EU single market has allowed in 10 years that the EU-trade (exports and imports) increase by 15% annually
  3. Thanks to the European Single Market, 2.5 million jobs have been created
  4. The European Union estimates that if existing barriers to the single market were removed, the GDP of the twenty-eight-member would increase by 235 billion euros
  5. The completion of the single market has not yet been achieved. The Europe 2020 strategy is key to the development of the European Single Market
