Economics and EU Single Market

Economics and EU Single Market
European liberal democrats believe in an economy that is based on market principles where individual economic and political freedoms are guaranteed as the most effective system for ensuring future prosperity, encouraging competiveness and ensuring longer-term employment.
Therefore, the ELDR Party has consistently been promoting free trade and a fully functioning European Single Market for the benefit of consumers and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
