Scenarios of 1992 and Consequences for Euro-Japanese Relationship

  • Jürgen Müller
Conference paper


Even though the European Community (EC) has been formed in 1958 and its economic integration has progressed steadily since, the concept of achieving a more or less unified single market by 1992 has created an additional impetus for further integration. The major emphasis of the policies aimed at completing the single European Market by 1992 rests on the removal of the Community’s remaining internal market barriers. But the link of this policy to external trade is obvious. The more the Community moves towards becoming a cohesive economic block, the greater is its ability to behave in a consistent unified manner vis-à-vis the outside world. Some have therefore expressed the fear, that the realization of a unified single market may lead to further external barriers in line with the “Fortress Europe” concept.
