French Fears

The EU has been trying to come to an agreement on freeing up trade in services despite resistance from some quarters.

The European Commission insisted Friday it will not withdraw plans to open Europe's services sector to cross-border competition, despite French pressure for the proposals to go "back to the drawing board".
Go back to the drawing board means scrap them an let us do business the French way.
France fears that such a law -- which would be applicable across all 25 EU member states -- would allow a company to set up shop in Poland, for instance, where labour is cheaper, and provide a service back to France at a lower cost than that faced by French competitors abiding by French laws.
Yes that was the whole point Jacques.
