Document launched to highlight benefits of EU for citizens


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.
