  • Report on the implementation of the European Charter for Small Enterprises: Report from the Commission to the Council and the European Parliament. - COM(2002) 68 final

Abstract

The European Charter for Small Enterprises, endorsed at the Feira European Council in June 2000, is central to achieving the Lisbon objective of making Europe the world�s most competitive and dynamic economy by 2010. This is the second annual implementation report on the Charter. The 2002 report reviews progress made by the Member States, Norway and the Commission in implementing the Charter�s strategic recommendations in the period since its adoption. It is based on detailed national reports submitted by participating countries, and on bilateral meetings between the Commission and national authorities. The report concludes that while progress has been made in key areas such as cutting red tape and improving access to e-commerce, performance in these areas varies widely across the EU.
