Juncker presented five scenarios for the future of the EU after Brexit
It is planned to select five ideas of one or a few and bring them up to 2025
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in his speech in the European Parliament presented a draft on the future vision of the European Union, which contains five main scenarios. It is reported by the European true with reference to EUobsrever.
The project will mark the beginning of a discussion about the future of the EU, in particular, after the withdrawal of Britain from the block.
“We are celebrating the 60th anniversary of the treaties of Rome and it is time for the United Europe of 27 countries to form a vision of their future,” said Juncker.
It is planned to choose one or a combination of five ideas and implement them by 2025. The so-called “White book” Juncker also seen as a reaction to the growing populism in Europe, and is a continuation of agreements reached by EU leaders at last year’s summit in Bratislava.
The “White book” presented a scenario, called “we work”, “nothing but a single” market, “those who want more, do more, do less, but more effectively and do much more together.”
According to Juncker, the shortcomings of the current system lies in the fact that decision-making remains a complex procedure, and their performance does not meet expectations.
“Nothing but the single market” means that the migration, security and defence will not be discussed or resolved at EU level.
The script of “those who want more, do more” will revolve around a certain circle of EU States that want closer integration in areas such as taxation, while other EU States would be free to decide whether they want to join them later.

The principle of “do less, but more efficiently” designed to move away from social and employment policies with a focus on trade, security, migration, defense and borders. This includes the creation of a European defence Union and the development of the EU border Agency Frontex for the management of external borders.
The script “to do much more together” is likely a reaction to the actions of populist groups and governments which want to regain sovereignty from the EU institutions.
