EU single market strategy
BusinessEurope pleads for the single market as a fair market with the unquestioned freedoms of movement of people, capital, goods, services and data. It is crucial that there is understanding why the single market is the strongest tool to reap benefits of digitalisation and address the primary challenges people of Europe face, such as climate change, migration, global trade tensions and Brexit, along with a generally unstable global geo-political landscape. No EU member state is capable of addressing it all alone.
Freedoms of movement of capital, goods, services, people and data on the single market can give huge economic power to the EU, its members individually and as a whole, enabling Europeans to gain more from globalisation. Further opening and integration of the markets of goods and services and barrier-free conditions for data economy are needed.
At the policy making level, the Single Market should be brought back to the top of the political agenda of the EU as an overarching instrument and “reflex” for the future-proof EU and national policy and law-making.
