Euroopan parlamentin jäsenet vaativat, että perusteettomat maakohtaiset rajoitukset, kuten IP-osoitteen, postiosoitteen tai luottokortin myöntäneen maan perusteella tapahtuva syrjintä, on poistettava tavaroiden ja palvelujen saatavuuden parantamiseksi. Mepit kehottavat Eurooppaa tarttumaan uusien tieto- ja viestintäteknologioiden, kuten massadatan, pilvipalveluiden, esineiden internetin ja 3D-tulostuksen luomiin mahdollisuuksiin. Parlamentti hyväksyi ei-lakiasäätävän päätöslauselman tiistaina. (Lue lisää: Mepit vaativat parannuksia sähköiseen kaupankäyntiin ja loppua geoblokkaukselle )

Terroriuhkan myötä Euroopassa on ryhdytty vaatimaan tiukempaa asevalvontaa. Keskiviikkona mepit keskustelevat EU:n asevientisäännöistä ja niiden tiukemmasta soveltamisesta ja äänestävät siitä seuraavana päivänä. Pelkästään vuonna 2013 EU:n jäsenmaat myivät 26,7 miljardilla eurolla aseita EU:n ulkopuolisille maille. Tämän keskustelun lisäksi meppien täytyy lähiaikoina ottaa kantaa aseiden rajoittamiseen EU:n alueella. (Lue lisää: Tiukempaa asevalvontaa: "Myymiämme aseita voidaan käyttää meitä vastaan" )
