Organiser: European Commission
As part of the 20th anniversary of the European Single Market, a Single Market Week will be organised from 15 to 20 October 2012 with events taking place in cities across the 27 Member States of the European Union.
Through these events, it is hoped to bring together European citizens and businesses with Members of the European Parliament, the European Commission, the European Council and the Member States to mark and reflect on the past, present and future of the Single Market.
Europeans citizens, students, experts, businesses, national and local public authorities will be provided with opportunities to discuss the main achievements of the Single Market during the last 20 years but will also look ahead, and share their views and expectations on the main challenges that the Single Market must overcome in the future.
These events will be organised by the 27 Member States of the EU, in collaboration with the EU Representative Offices in their countries, and will include forums, fairs, conferences, exhibitions, radio and TV programmes, quizzes etc.
The Single Market Week will take place at the same time as another initiative organized by the European Commission: the Small and Medium Enterprise Week.
