The European Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement, Johannes Hahn, will be on an official visit in Malta on Thursday 21 July 2016. On this occasion, the European Commission Representation, in collaboration with the Strickland Foundation, is organising a Public Seminar on the European Neighbourhood Policy: The Challenges we face in the South.
The European Commission has reiterated its commitment to ensure the effective application of the whole range of European legislation and, in particular, the world's biggest single market of 500 million citizens. The Annual Report provides a clear picture on how the Commission monitored and enforced European Union law in 2015 and the Single Market Scoreboard reveals that barriers to the free movement of persons, services, goods and capital in the EU are being eliminated in most areas. The constructive compliance dialogue between the Commission and Member States increasingly leads to compliance issues being resolved without the need to resort to formal procedures.
