EU : 20th Anniversary of the Single Market - 2012

675 views

2012 marks the 20th anniversary of the Single Market. A lot has been achieved. For European consumers the Single Market means more choice at lower prices. For citizens, the Single Market has given them the capacity to travel freely, to settle and work where they wish. For young people it has opened up the opportunity to study abroad – more than 2.5 million students have seized this opportunity in the last 25 years. For the 23 million companies in the EU the Single Market has opened up access to 500 million consumers and generated foreign investment. The message is clear, the evidence is there: a strong, deep and integrated Single Market creates growth, generates jobs and offers opportunities for European citizens which were not there 20 years ago. From 15 to 20 October 2012, the Single Market Week takes place under the slogan 'Together for new growth'. It comprises a series of events in cities all across Europe and will bring together policy-makers, social partners, businesses and citizens to discuss the achievements and challenges of the single market. To illustrate this event, the European Commission's audiovisual unit has produced a stockshot on the EU Single Market which includes footage illustrating: 1. Various EU citizens of different professions moving to Europe or doing business across EU borders; 2. Setting-up business in a Member State; 3. Doing business across borders; 4. Consumers.
