    [04] Free movement of workers after enlargement (frequently asked questions)

    Free movement of persons is one of the fundamental freedoms guaranteed by Community law and includes the right to live and work in another Member State. It is an essential element of the Internal Market and of European citizenship. After enlargement on 1 May 2004, there will be transitional periods limiting the free movement of workers from new Member States, which have been set out in the Accession Treaty.

    [05] EU-ACP : EU launches regional trade negotiations with Eastern and Southern Africa

    The EU and 16 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa have decided to join forces and promote trade and development by negotiating a region-to-region Economic and Partnership Agreement (EPA). By opening up trade between both regions and setting up clear rules for trade, the EPA will contribute to the economic integration of the region. Tearing down barriers to trade among themselves is the necessary complement to the almost full access to the EU market already enjoyed by these.

    [06] November 2003 compared to November 2002 : volume of retail trade down by 1.6% in euro-zone ; EU15 down by 0.1%

    In November 2003, compared to November 2002, the volume of retail trade decreased by 1.6% in the euro-zone and by 0.1% in the EU15, Eurostat estimates today. Compared to October 2003, the sales index fell by 1.9% in the euro-zone and by 1.0% in the EU15.
