A fully functional Digital Single Market would bring many benefits to European businesses and consumers.
It would promote innovation, contribute €415 billion to the EU economy each year and create hundreds of thousands of new jobs.
So the Commission has decided to give the Single Market a boost by improving mobility for service providers, ensuring that innovative business models can flourish, making it easier for retailers to do business across borders, and enhancing access to goods and services throughout the EU.
The Single Market Strategy is the European Commission’s plan to unlock the full potential of the Single Market.
The Single Market is at the heart of the European project, but its benefits do not always materialise because Single Market rules are not known or implemented, or they are undermined by other barriers.
The Single Market refers to the EU as one territory without any internal borders or other regulatory obstacles to the free movement of goods and services.
A functioning Single Market stimulates competition and trade, improves efficiency, raises quality, and helps cut prices.
EU companies have the freedom to establish themselves in other EU countries and the freedom to provide services in countries other than the one in which they are established.

The fact that there is a relatively plentiful supply of WW2 trailers today for jeep owners that want them is due in no small measure to the French Army and the fact that they repaired and rebuilt them as they wore out and also modified and improved the overall design. It is worth mentioning that in the French army trailers have their own unique registration number, a cunning idea as they were towed behind various vehicles.
Trailers, like jeeps, were maintained and modified in various workshops including a rebuilding programme by the Etablissement de Rserve Gnrale du Matriel Automobile (E. The trailer had been converted to 24 volts complete with additional NATO hook-up cable but still had one of the two rear light units as a blackout marker / stop light in WW2 style which had to be replaced for road legality and safety.
As part of this upgrade the original WW2 style lead with four-pole plug was finally removed leaving only the NATO style cable and multi-pin connector.
