Citizens' Agenda - Single Market Review

Single Market Review

The aim of the single market review was to look at how the single market had evolved in line with Europe's economies since 1992. The objective is to see what action is needed to ensure that the Single Market continues to deliver on its economic promise, and to ensure that citizens effectively reap the benefits. The review aims to set out a clear and coherent vision for the Single Market.
