Cameron and Rajoy make joint call for structural reforms in EU

"We have to make the European Union much more competitive"

Britain and Spain aim to boost growth in EU

The prime ministers of Britain and Spain, David Cameron and Mariano Rajoy, made a joint call on Friday for structural reforms in the EU to make it more competitive and boost growth, Reuters reported. “The truth is that the situation in the European Union is not good enough. We have to make the European Union much more competitive and translate the momentum of national structural reforms to the field of the EU,” the two leaders wrote in a joint article for Spanish financial daily Expansion. Cameron wants to reform Britain's relationship with the EU before a membership referendum due by the end of 2017. The cep believes that the EU would lose a major force for reforms, should Britain exit the bloc.
