Going global

One of the key objectives of DG Enterprise and Industry is to ensure that the Commission's policies make European enterprises more competitive, thus stimulating economic growth and creating more jobs.

This strategy for growth and jobs, Europe 2020, not only looks inwards at the EU (aiming to make Europe a more attractive place in which to live and work), but also has an external dimension: to ensure that EU companies can compete fairly in the global marketplace, by opening up markets and further liberalising trade.

In order to achieve these objectives, the Commission is establishing a framework for more effective international regulatory cooperation, reinforcing the synergy between this cooperation and the Market Access Strategy.

DG Enterprise and Industry works closely with other DGs in the Commission, namely the DGs for External Relations , Trade and Enlargement, to ensure that enterprise aspects and expertise are taken into account when formulating the overall policy.
