Select ongoing project:


International Expert Conference

The partners intend to gather experts on the Single Market to discuss the development of Internal market of the European Union in last ten years and its future prospects.

The access to Internal Market was among the most important incentives beyond the Central and Eastern European countries decisions to join the EU. Nevertheless, several transitional provisions disturbed full EU market convergence. Although these flaws, which included mainly free movement of persons and cabotage, have been overcome, the Internal Market remains uncompleted.

The conference will pay special attention to the contribution of the CEE countries. It will address, inter alia, these issues:

(1) What was the contribution of 2004 enlargement for the Single Market?

(2) What are the key initiatives stemming from the Single Market Act I and II and how will they revive EU commerce?

(3) How to balance regulation and harmonization with subsidiarity and proportionality?

(4) What are the barriers of deepening the Single Market in services and of completing the digital market?
