60th Anniversary of the Treaties of Rome

March 25 - May 9

Sixty years ago in Rome, the foundations were laid for the Europe that we know today, ushering in the longest period of peace in written history in Europe. The Treaties of Rome established a common market where people, goods, services and capital can move freely and created the conditions for prosperity and stability for European citizens.

The Treaties establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) signed on 25 March 1957 by Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands in Rome. They are commonly referred to as the “Treaties of Rome”.

On this anniversary, Europe looks back with pride and looks forward with hope. For 60 years we have built a Union that promotes peaceful cooperation, respect of human dignity, liberty, democracy, equality and solidarity among European nations and peoples. Now, Europe’s shared and better future is ours to design.
