About The European Union

The European Union (EU) is a supranational organization that is currently composed of 27 European countries. The EU began as the European Steel and Coal Community in 1951. Since then, the EU has developed in stages with the creation of an economic community, development of a single market and the removal of many trade restrictions and border controls. The EU now has a common currency and has begun to develop a common foreign affairs policy.
