April 18 (Bloomberg) — “It is incomprehensible that member states are still not fully implementing growth-friendly legislation we have in place,” European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso told the European Parliament. The EU’s internal market “is probably the largest engine for growth within the European Union,” Barroso said. It has to become easier to transfer pensions from state to state and the way cross-border workers are taxed needs to be simplified, the Commission said Wednesday. Job seekers should be able to receive their unemployment benefits for up to six months while they are looking for a job in another country and states should start hiring non-nationals for jobs in their public service, it added.
