Radičová explained that the initiative contained, for example, anti-corruption measures, the SITA news wrote.

“At question is their possible usage at the EU level,” said Radičová. “The aim is to increase enforceability of the law, improvement of the business environment, competitiveness of the EU and protection of consumers.”

Furthermore, Radičová explained that one aspect of the agenda also refers to sensitive questions of gender equality with a focus on balancing the rights of women in EU member countries.
