Enrico Letta's Report on the Future of the Single Market

Former Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta's report on the future of the Single Market is out!

Enrico Letta SME Assembly 2023

Launched 30 years ago, the Single Market is the jewel in the crown of European integration, a source of common wealth. Faced with a more conflictual, volatile and complex world, a special effort in terms of strategic rethinking is required.

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”.

Both countries and the Commission would like to find in it concrete and ambitious recommendations and asked the former Italian head of government, Enrico Letta, to write this report. The report is now available.

In order to draft this report, which may come to define the future of the Single Market for years to come, Mr. Letta has travelled across Europe and beyond seeking to gather information and input. One of the stops on this route was 2023's SME Assembly, where he was able to engage with participants from all around Europe and understand the main issues at stake. Insights from the Network of SME Envoys contributed to the comprehensive analysis.

Mr. Letta also spoke in the session 'The Single Market at 30: Nobody falls in love with a Common Market'. Find out more about his visit to the SME Assembly below.
