Summary/Abstract: The EU’s internal market is one of the few highest achievements of the European integration process. As a form of profound economic integration, it brings enormous economic benefits to its members, enabling freedom of movement of goods, services, persons and capital. The internal market has proven to be the strongest integrative factor in the EU and as such a very reliable foundation for further economic and integration in other areas, thus creating the preconditions for “ever closer union” among its members. Having in mind its potential for economic development and the importance of overall integration, the needs and possibilities for further deepening, the internal market can be considered as the “core business” of the European Union. Given the economic benefits it brings and the importance for overall integration, the faster and deeper integration into the internal market should be a priority of the BiH integration process in the EU. However, ten years ago since the signing of the SAA, Bosnia and Herzegovina is still “at an early stage” of this process and with the “limited progress” achieved so far.
