TALLINN (AFP) - Sweden would be part of a new customs-free internal market suggested by Estonia's Foreign Minister.
European Union members on the Baltic Sea should drop customs controls among themselves to create a trade-boosting maritime zone, Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said Monday.
"EU states located around the Baltic Sea should should have an internal market to abolish time-wasting customs procedures and promote trade and cooperation in the Baltic Sea region," Paet told reporters after meeting visiting Finnish counterpart Alexander Stubb.
Besides Estonia and Finland, six other members of the 27-nation EU lie on the Baltic: Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
