Messina Conference

Ministers for Foreign Affairs of the six ECSC countries met in Messina on 1 June 1955 and entrusted a committee of governmental delegates (the committee was presided by former Belgian Prime Minister Paul-Henri Spaak) the task of studying the possibility of creating a common European market. The meeting in Messina represented a "re-launching" of the construction of European and an attempt to renew dialogue. However, two years of negotiations were necessary to reach the Treaties of Rome on 25 March 1957, establishing the European Economic Community (Common Market) and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom).
