In practice, it gives individuals the right to earn a living, study or retire in another EU country. It also gives consumers a wider choice of items to buy at competitive prices, allows them to enjoy greater protection when shopping at home, abroad or online and makes it easier and cheaper for companies large and small to do business across borders and to compete globally. This publication is a part of a series that explains what the EU does in... different policy areas, why the EU is involved and what the results are.
