What happened?

The European Council of 30 June 2023 called “for an independent High-Level Report on the future of the Single Market to be presented at its meeting of March 2024 and invites the incoming presidencies of the Council and the Commission to take this work forward, in consultation with the Member States”.

This conversation sought to make sense of the challenges that stand in the way of further market integration in the light of the current cost-of-living crisis, war and climate imperatives and in the context of the publication of the flagship report on the ‘Future of the Single Market’ by former Italian head of government, Enrico Letta.

This 60-minute discussion included a 10-minute introduction by Giulia Del Brenna, Head of Unit for Strategy and Regulation: Single Market and Industrial Policy at the Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG Grow), after which Friends of Europe’s members had the opportunity to pose comments or questions in an off-the-record exchange.

‘What the Chiefs Say’ events are exclusive, small, informal and off-the-record roundtable debates that offer our members the exclusive opportunity to engage directly and get to the heart of a specific policy issue with a senior decision-maker from a European institution or government. These events are geared to be in tune with the interest of our members and are strategically linked to emerging trends within the EU sphere. It allows us to focus on the opportunities and identify the possible challenges in the European Commission’s own agenda and provides the possibility to go into greater depth and discuss the ‘nitty gritty’ of policies affecting Europe in the next years and beyond.
