This partnership began in 1958, when Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands formed the European Economic Community (EEC). Since then, 22 other countries have joined the above-mentioned countries, which since 1993 jointly formed the European Union. The United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union at the end of 2020.
