Internal Market Commissioner Bieńkowska on Single Market Strategy

Elżbieta Bieńkowska, the EU Commissioner in charge of the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, will speak at the IES on Tuesday 26 April 13.30

Commissioner Bieńkowska will talk about the Commission's approach to the Single Market. The Single Market is one of Europe’s greatest achievements. By allowing people, services, goods and capital to move more freely in the world’s largest economy (14 trillion euros GDP), it offers enormous opportunities. But these opportunities are not always used, because Single Market rules are not known, not implemented or simply undermined by other barriers. That is why the European Commission has decided to give the Single Market a new boost with a number of ambitious and pragmatic actions in a Single Market Strategy adopted last October. 

Registration

The event will take at place Pleinlaan 5, Floor  -1  between 13:30-15:00, with a sandwich lunch starting at 13.30. For the purposes of catering and space, registration is manadatory.
