A new document has been set up to highlight the benefits of the European Union for its citizens in 2006.
‘Europe and You: A snapshot of EU achievements’ is aimed at giving Europeans a better understanding of what the European Union does.
The 10 achievements listed include cheaper phone calls when traveling; the end to misleading claims on food and the reduction of risks from dangerous chemicals.
Director of the European Commission Representation in Ireland, Martin Territt, said there were more consumer-friendly developments in the pipeline for 2007.
