The EU Single Market was launched in 1993.
The original vision of the Single Market project was to create a single, prosperous economic area. People, goods, services and capital would move freely. European citizens would enjoy rising standards of living. But has the Single Market delivered on this promise?
AmCham EU explores the benefits of the Single Market in the series 'The Future of the Single Market' and through its study The EU Single Market: Impact on EU Member States.
'The Future of the Single Market'
AmCham EU and ITN Productions have released ‘The Future of the Single Market’, a news and current affairs-style programme that explores the benefits of the Single Market across several industries and sectors, as well as looking to the future, as the EU moves towards a new narrative.
Hosted by national news anchor Natasha Kaplinsky ‘The Future of the Single Market’ takes the temperature of business operations within the Single Market, as the UK and EU27 negotiate the UK’s departure from the EU, and looks at how the ‘four freedoms’ impact the trade of goods and services, as well as access to talent and capital.
