Enlargement in perspective
Brussels, (6th March) Commissioner Štefan Füle participated today at the conference: ''Enlargement in perspective: how do candidate and potential candidate countries perceive accession in the light of the current crisis?'' in the European Parliament where he stressed that: "Enlargement is not at the root of Europe's current difficulties. It is rather part of the solution with the primary goal of strengthening the European Union. Enlargement is promoting economic and financial stability and supporting increased trade and business opportunities in the aspiring countries, between them and between them and us. Through our inter-connected economies, this translates into a shared interest in more growth and jobs."
