The imminent accession of ten countries to the European Union presents the EU with probably its greatest challenge to date. It is not only a cultural challenge but also a huge economic challenge, as the former communist bloc countries begin to embrace a free market economy rather than the centrally planned command economy of their Communist past. The pre-accession negotiations centre around the 'acquis communautaire', the gigantic body of EU law and the ability of the candidate countries to implement it.
