1992

  1. (economics) The commencement of the single market trade association of European Union countries, on January 1, 1993.
    • 1992, David Bowen, “Why European goats may welcome the late arrival of 1992: David Bowen examines the obvious and hidden changes due with the EC's single market”, in The Independent, December 29:[1]
      ON Friday, 1992 arrives. It is a year late, but that is one of the least confusing things about '1992', as the Single European Market process used to be called. For 1 January 1993 is in reality just one more marker in a process that started in 1985 and will continue until at least 1995.
