Agenda Definition from Government Dictionaries & Glossaries
US Zip Codes
This term literally means "things to be done". It normally refers to the list of items for discussion at a meeting, but politicians also use it as a jargon term meaning "things we want to achieve". For example, "Agenda 2000" was the title of a package of proposals to reform the Common Agricultural Policy (see: ''CAP reform'') and to plan the EU's budget for 2000-2006. Anti-trust The EU aims to guarantee fair and free competition in the single market, and to ensure that companies compete rather than collude. So EU rules prohibit agreements that restrict competition (e.g. secret agreements between companies to charge artificially high prices) and abuses by firms who hold a dominant position on the market. Rules of this kind are known as "anti-trust" legislation. The Commission has considerable powers to prohibit anti-competitive activities, and to impose fines on firms found guilty of anti-competitive conduct.
