In January, the European Commission proposed the "Services Package" which contains four initiatives aimed at improving the free movement of services in the single market. We are delighted to be joined by Andreas Schwab MEP, IMCO Rapporteur, to discuss the Commission's ambition in shaping "a European services economy that works for Europeans".
