One of the representatives of the 27 member countries is Daniel Blockert, ambassador at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. He says that today's discussion will primarily be about obstacles in the internal market, i.e. the EU as a trade area.
"The internal market turns 30 this year and has been incredibly important for Sweden's economy, but there are still obstacles, not least to the green transition," says Daniel Blockert.
What is most important during this meeting?
"This is about trying to lift our eyes from all the crises right now and look ahead, figure out how to maintain our competitiveness in the long run.
