What We Do

EU and Internal Market

We have a leadership and coordination role in respect of the EU Competitiveness Council and on the Single Market and generally in driving the department’s EU agenda. We engage proactively at EU institutional level and with our EU partners so as to ensure that departmental EU priority measures are advanced.

We support our ministers in their pursuit of achieving domestic and EU policy outcomes that are supportive, in particular, of the enterprise, competitiveness, single market and innovation agendas. In relation to Brexit, we ensure a coordinated and coherent approach to Brexit across all policy areas of the department.
