Single Market Forum (Krakow, 3-4 October): registration still open

Would you like to have a say on how to make the EU Single Market work better?

You can still register for the Single Market Forum which will take place in Krakow, Poland, from October 3-4, 2011, by filling in this form.

The Forum will look at the state of Single Market and its future: how the EU laws aimed at making the Single Market work are applied in practice, what the top concerns are, and what should be improved.

The Forum is bringing together businesses, consumers, NGOs, public authorities (including at regional and local level), national MPs, EU institutions and other stakeholders.

The Forum workshops (3 October) will include one on the future of out-of-court dispute resolution schemes for consumers in the EU, including online dispute resolution.

Monday, 3 October, will also see the presentation of real-life stories from citizens and businesses about the challenges they face in the EU's Single Market. These stories will be winners of an EU-wide competition "Tell us your story".

Tuesday (4 October) highlights include the conclusions from the workshops and a declaration on the areas to improve in the functioning of the Single Market.  A panel debate will follow, with the panel speakers including John Dalli, EU Commissioner for Health and Consumers.
