Mapping the Cost of Non-Europe, a European Parliament study


Europe's economy could be boosted by €990 billion – equivalent to 7.5% of current GDP – if more action is undertaken at EU level, according to a recent report from the European Parliament. The study “Mapping the Cost of Non-Europe, 2014-19” looked at the potential efficiency gains in today’s European economy from pursuing a series of policy initiatives recently advocated by the Parliament - from a wider and deeper digital single market to an integrated energy market. It is intended as a contribution to the growing discussion about the EU’s policy priorities for the coming five-year.
