Barnier: “I will continue to serve the public interest”

In an exclusive interview with EURACTIV's editor Frederic Simon, EU Internal Market Commissioner Michel Barnier spoke about the future of Europe and his own career plans after the EU elections in May. Barnier will publish a book on the European debate on the 15th of April. “In this book, I try to explain that if we don’t react together, learn lessons, if we don't launch new policies or reconnect citizens with Europe, our liberty as Europeans is at stake. We'll loose it.” Barnier said.
