The development of the European Economic Community will pose many and serious problems in the next 12 or 15 years both within the market area and in its relations with the outside world. The creation of the European Economic Community is anticipated to stimulate an effort to modernize and rationalize each industry, to seek agreement on areas of concentration and establish international business contracts with a view to making European-wide agreements of a similar nature. Clearly, the Common Market treaty will profoundly modify the European economy in the new few years. This article examines and evaluates a few of the essential provisions of the treaty and defines its scope. The author attempts to evaluate the probable serious problems associated to the establishment of the Common Market.
