The Your Europe portal seeks to help people and companies move and/or do business in the EU by providing clear information on their single market rights and signposting them to assistance services when needed.
Putting user needs first, the multilingual portal has 2 separate sections:
Its content is provided by both EU institutions and national governments.
EU governments can support this website in 2 important ways:
- by contributing content to it (i.e. national rules implementing the single market)
- by promoting it to their own citizens and businesses.
The 2013 Commission Action Plan for Your Europe reiterated the need for EU countries to provide support. The Competitiveness Council and the European Parliament endorsed this.
