Press conference by Michel Barnier on the Single Market Act II

901 views

On 3 October 2012, Michel Barnier, Member of the EC in charge of Internal Market and Services, gave a press conference in Brussels to present the "Single Market Act II" adopted by the European Commission on the same day. This second phase of the Single Market Act is putting forward twelve key actions for rapid adoption by the EU institutions. These actions are concentrated on four main drivers for growth, employment and confidence: a) integrated networks, b) cross border mobility of citizens and businesses, c) the digital economy, and d) actions that reinforce cohesion and consumer benefits. Single Market Act II follows in the footsteps of a first set of measures presented by the European Commission - the "Single Market Act I" - and represents a new chapter in a process towards a deeper and better integrated single market. It marks the 20th anniversary of the EU's single market and raises the curtain on the Single Market Week (15-20 October 2012). Under the theme "Together for new growth", a week-long series of events across the EU will give an opportunity to policy-makers and citizens to discuss the achievements and challenges of the single market and come up with new ideas.
