Report presented on 15 July 2019 by the European Commission highlighting its most important competition policy and legislative initiatives, as well as key decisions adopted in the last year.
The year 2018 marked the 60th anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty on the European Economic Community, the foundation for today’s European Union. Today, the European Union, with its 24.5 million small, medium-sized and large companies competing to serve its 500 million consumers, continues to provide a vibrant internal market contributing to the competitiveness of EU industry and sustainable development of the European economy based on competitive social market values.
This annual report stresses how fostering a competitive internal market benefits both EU consumers and companies, with a focus on the effectiveness of competition enforcement, challenges in the digital economy, a more resilient financial sector and a fair and non-discriminatory taxation of firms active in the EU, as well as on promoting a global competition culture.
