IfM-Background-Paper | 2020 The corona pandemic as a chance for a forward-looking EU Mittelstand policy

The European Single Market is by far the most important sales and procurement market for Mittelstand businesses. Its harmonised regulatory system reduces transaction costs and gives companies access to a larger overall market. The author explain in this background paper why the European Single Market and a European approach to SME policy could provide important impulses for a coordinated overcoming of the Covid 19-crisis and the shaping of the future beyond the current level.
