Single Market Commissioner Michel Barnier recently pointed out that the EU needs to be "bold and ambitious" in taking the single market forward, despite the current crisis. The recent debate on the EU budget triggered a reflection on what is the best way to employ EU resources to achieve this objective. Meanwhile, the UK has launched an initiative to assess the benefits and costs yielded by its EU membership.

This workshop focuses on the Single Market. Bringing together representatives from Member States, international institutions, academia and the corporate world, it addresses the questions: what role should be played by the EU to foster economic development of the Single Market? Should EU competences be expanded or reduced in order to maximize the benefits that the Single Market can yield to European citizens?

Please note that this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
