EU marks 10th anniversary of 2004 enlargement
EU institutions have noted the 10th anniversary of the bloc’s greatest enhancement in recent history.
On the 1st of May 2004, 10 new nations joined the EU.
These were: Cyprus, Slovenia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
“Accession benefited both countiers joining established member states and the EU. Growth increased growth and improved living standards within the acceding countries,” said EU enlargement commissioner Stefan Füle.
Although these in Brussels come the 2004 EU growth like a resounding success, the actual solution will probably come in the future European elections.
