Account by Francisco Fonseca Morillo (Madrid, 6 October 2009)

Audio extract
Francisco Fonseca, Director of the European Commission Representation in Spain, discusses his professional career in the European institutions and gives his views on the process leading to Spain’s accession to the European Communities, which he describes as the search for a role within an increasingly integrated Europe. He also analyses the parallel and interdependent nature of Spain’s transition to democracy and its accession to the European Communities, and the difficulties in achieving a balance between the obligations of the internal market and the requirements of the cohesion policy. Finally, he discusses the frontiers of the European integration process and the need for further development of the European Union’s neighbourhood policy.
