As per wikipedia:

The Treaty of Rome, officially the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community (TEEC), is an international agreement that brought about the creation of the European Economic Community (EEC), the best-known of the European Communities (EC). It was signed on 25 March 1957 by Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and West Germany and came into force on 1 January 1958. It remains one of the two most important treaties in the modern-day European Union (EU).

The TEEC proposed the progressive reduction of customs duties and the establishment of a customs union. It proposed to create a single market for goods, labour, services, and capital across the EEC's member states. It also proposed the creation of a Common Agriculture Policy, a Common Transport Policy and a European Social Fund, and established the European Commission.

The treaty's name has been retrospectively amended on several occasions since 1957. The Maastricht Treaty of 1992 removed the word "economic" from the Treaty of Rome's official title and, in 2009, the Treaty of Lisbon renamed it the "Treaty on the functioning of the European Union".

The Treaty of Rome established the European Economic Community (EEC) which is seen as a major stepping stone in the creation of the EU.

The EEC established a common market, which gave members the freedom to move goods, services, capital and people, and also a customs union among the founding states.

It was signed in Rome in March 1957 by France, the then West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg - the core of the original EEC, who described themselves as "determined to lay the foundations of an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe".
