Creating the Single internal Market in EU has brought the danger of unregulated enterprises supporting by members countries, which would be discordant with the idea of free economy. That is why European Commission has decided to implement single competition policy. It was strongly connected with the necessity of state aid regulation at EU level. Its foundations were included in Art. 87-88 of the Treaty Establishing The European Community. Starting with the Lisbon agenda in 2000, institutions of EU launched the process of reducing the general level of State aids and shifting the emphasis from supporting individual companies or sectors towards tackling horizontal objectives.
