One of the principal aims of the European Community (the EC) is the creation of a single market, with an unrestricted flow of goods, persons, services and capital between the Member States. This is expressed in Article 2 of the Treaty of Rome 1957:

The Community shall have as its task, by establishing a common market ... to promote throughout the Community a harmonious development of economic activities, a continuous and balanced expansion, an increase in stability, an accelerated raising of the standard of living and closer relations between the States belonging to it.
