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.

The euro comes of age

A well-functioning euro reflects a degree of unity that allows the EU to credibly claim a position at the global table and therefore help shape the policies that will deal with global problems. That is a decisive success.

The Euro at 20

Including home-ownership costs in the inflation indicator is not just a technical issue

The European Central Bank is right to propose inclusion of owner-occupied housing services in the inflation indicator. But the ECB’s preferred method would involve an asset price in the consumer inflation indicator.
