"I believe the 20th anniversary is the right time to bring forward a major package for tomorrow's single market, with proposals for specific actions to plug the gaps in today's single market, and to ensure that the benefits of the internal market get through to the final consumer.

Markets do not exist in isolation. They exist to serve a purpose. And that purpose is prosperity for all."


President José Manuel Barroso, 3 September 2009
Political Guidelines for the Next Commission


"The current economic crisis has once again underlined how crucial the Single Market is for the success of the European project. I look forward to exploring how we can remove the remaining obstacles and reinvigorate the process. This may require a fresh look at how the market and the social dimension of an integrated European economy can be mutually strengthened."


Mario Monti, 20 October 2009
Joint press conference with President Barroso


The Single Market is the cornerstone of Europe's integration and sustainable growth. As the European Union approaches the 20th anniversary of the symbolic date of 1992, President Barroso believes, as announced in his Political Guidelines, that the Single Market requires renewed political determination so that it can withstand the threat of economic nationalism and reach its full potential.


President Barroso has therefore decided to entrust Mario Monti, President of Bocconi University and former Commissioner for the Internal market, Financial services and Tax policy (1995-1999) and for Competition (1999-2004), with the mission of preparing a report containing options and recommendations for an initiative to relaunch the Single Market as a key strategic objective of the new Commission.


Throughout this mission Mr Monti will be able to rely on the Commission’s expertise and support, specifically the Bureau of European Policy Advisors (BEPA). He may hold consultations with the European Parliament, with the relevant Commissioners, with the competent authorities of Members States and with think-tanks involved in the field.


On 10 May 2010, the Professor shall submit his report on the re-launch of the Single Market to President José Manuel Barroso:
