In this article the single market program of the European Union (EU) is examined and analyzed. The EU internal market program represents a step change in Europe's economic development, but the project has not yet reached completion. An overall examination of the single market's successes is studied. Job creation would be addressed by the restructuring of the labor market. Many of Lisbon, Portugal's policy concerns are strictly national policy. Specific internal market aspects of the Lisbon Agenda are also presented.
