The Ministers hold public debates on audit reform and on the modernisation of the state aid rules and their impact on EU competitiveness. Ministers also exchange views on several aspects of copyright law in the EU, including on a set of recommendations on private copying and reprography levies.

They are also to be informed by the Commission on the follow-up to initiatives carried out in support of those sectors. Pursuing its efforts to relieve regulatory burden for the benefit of the competitiveness of EU companies, the Council is expected to adopt conclusions on smart regulation. Furthermore, the Council takes stock of progress made regarding the Single Market Act actions, which is a set of priority measures aimed at increasing confidence and stimulating growth and jobs creation.
