Introductory remarks by Commissioner Jonathan Hill at the launch of the Capital Markets Union Action Plan (SPEECH/15/5749)

Press Conference

I am very pleased to be here and to have the chance after a number of months to publish our Action Plan on the Capital Markets Union. And I have just come from the College where there was very strong support for this package because I think my colleagues all see that the Capital Markets Union is a central part of our overall effort to encourage jobs and growth. And I'm particularly pleased that this is the first of three big single market initiatives set out by President Juncker on which the Commission is taking action. It lies at the heart of our economic agenda alongside our drive on free trade and our drive on better regulation.
