Common market

« Back to Glossary Index

It is an economic market that allows economic agents to buy or sell goods or services freely. The interested parties can move with ease within the common market. There are no customs duties to pay and all economic agents, whoever they may be, are subject to the same and unique regulations. The common market is generally the result of an agreement between several countries wishing to facilitate the circulation and exchange of services and products. The internal market set up in 1988 by Europe is a concrete example of a common market.
