Thank you to @frances_fitzgerald_mep for organising a seminar this morning celebrating 30 years of the EU Single Market!Reflecting back over thirty years, we can really appreciate the role that the Single Market has played in Ireland’s move to an open, outward-looking economy and peaceful society. It has been so positive to see and experience the transformative impact that the Single Market has had for women by giving us better opportunity and choice to participate fully in the workforce – either through direct employment or by starting our own business. During this time Irish businesses have been enabled to grow and trade in new markets as well as to remain resilient during economic shocks. The Single Market has also served as an important platform for businesses to work in partnership across the EU, enabling them to share skills and knowledge. Looking at the next thirty years, it will be important to continue shaping the Single Market so that it helps us to future-proof our economy through emerging opportunities such as the green and digital transitions. In order to facilitate better decision-making and better outcomes for our people, our business community and society as a whole, we must work to ensure that the Single Market of the future supports our inclusion and diversity requirements. ...
