In this exclusive interview with Baudouin Bollaert for Politique Internationale, the new European Commissioner for Internal Market and Services discusses the top priorities on his desk. The first Frenchman to occupy this position, Michel Barnier was appointed just as Europe faced one of the most serious crises in its history. He takes particular pride in the agreement on financial supervision, signed last September, which will provide early risk-detection and emergency action before any future disaster occurs. But there is even more work to be done, like realigning markets to better serve the real economy and encouraging long-term investment rather than short-term profits. However, to achieve these goals, the internal EU market must function well, which is why Michel Barnier is preparing an extensive slate of measures to overcome the bottlenecks that continue to block progress.
