(Euro Papers. 40. August 2000.
Brussels. Ann. )
On 6 June an audience of 450 drawn from small firms organisations, banks, trade associations and other communication multipliers attended “Enterprises 2002” to reflect on the practical impact for enterprises of the end of the transition period on 31 December 2001.
This conference had been announced as far back as February in the Communication strategy in the last phases of the completion of EMU (see also Euro Paper 38) as one of its activities targeted at enterprises “to draw practical conclusions on the first year of the single currency and to help raise awareness levels of business”.
It was a major stepping stone leading to the Communication on Practical aspects of the euro: state of play and tasks ahead(see also Euro Paper 41).
