This mechanism doesn't force the candidates to make any new decisions. It gives the opportunity to discuss about the problem fast, not to punish fast. This clause can be very useful in some cases. For example, if some of the food products wouldn't fulfill the fixed criteria, they could be expelled from the single market. Of course, the candidates will have to agree with accepting the clause as a part of the treaty. The clause will certainly provide some advantages for the candidates. If we were facing a problem, which could be caused by a huge competition within the european single market, we would be able to defend our sctructures by using the clause. The reccomendations of the European Commission have to be discussed as well as the way the expansion of the EU will be financed. Germany, Sweden, Great Britain and Netherlands are the main financial sources for the european public purse. They don't want to pay the future members directly, but they must be ready to make compromises. The Germany itself is facing a lot of financial problems and doesn't want to have more. A strong decision had to be made in Ireland the last month. The population of this country had the opportunity to influence the expansion with their votes. Fortunately, they voted for the expansion, so the door to the European Union are open. Except the strategy in the process of the EU-expansion, the European Commission has to regularly evaluate the candidates. Although the last evaluation looked positive for us, the EC mentioned and also pointed at some of our problems. One of the biggest of them is corruption. It will take a lot of time and hard work to deal with it, but there's no problem that could not be effectively solved until the beginning of the year 2004. In fact, in most of the integration chapters, the comission praises us for the progress we made. I think that we belong to a better average, as well as the Czech Republic or Hungary does. So, there's no need to be afraid of the eastern countries joining the EU. The governments of the present member countries should inform their population about the progress we've made since the last few years. It's also necessary to assure them, that we are a territory, in which new investments can be settled up and mention that we're fulfilling all of the fixed criteria to enter the union. After all these steps, it's up to us if we will be invited to the european structures with a potential to become a modern and well-developed central european country.
