Mere og mere af vores daglige liv er centreret omkring internettet. Selv om der ikke er fysiske grænser, er der stadig mange udfordringer. En af udfordringerne er geoblokering. Når vi ønsker at købe et produkt eller en tjeneste online, bliver vi ofte forhindret heri, fordi sælgeren befinder sig i et andet land. Onsdag debatterede MEP'erne nye forslag fra Europa-Kommissionen, som indeholder regler for at tackle uberettiget geoblokering og bringe os et skridt nærmere et digitalt indre marked. (Læs mere: Et skridt tættere på det digitale indre marked )

 

Plans for stricter monitoring and certification procedures to ensure that medical devices such as breast or hip implants comply fully with safety and traceability requirements were informally agreed by MEPs and the Dutch Presidency of the Council on Wednesday.

The EU Commission should go on negotiating with the USA to remedy “deficiencies” in proposed “Privacy Shield” protection for EU citizens’ data transferred to the US for commercial purposes, Parliament says in a non-legislative resolution passed on Thursday. (Read more: EU-US “Privacy Shield” for data transfers: further improvements needed, MEPs say )

 

Parliament approved aid on Thursday worth €6,468,000 for 557 redundant workers from the “Larissa” supermarket in Greece and €5,146,800 for 2,132 former drivers for the road haulage and delivery firm MoryGlobal SAS in France. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aid will still need to be approved by the Council of Ministers on 6 June.

De nye initiativer, der skal gøre det lettere for forbrugere og virksomheder at købe og sælge produkter og tjenester online i hele EU, blev hilst velkommen af flertallet af MEPerne i en debat med Kommissionens næstformand for det digitale indre marked, Andrus Ansip, onsdag eftermiddag. Parlamentet og Ministerrådet lovgiver i fællesskab om det digitale indre marked. (Læs mere: Nye forslag om det digitale indre marked skridt i den rigtige retning )

 

Eftersom mælkepriserne er faldet i EU og der ikke er tegn på nogen snarlig bedring af situationen, vil MEP'erne torsdag morgen kl. 8.30 spørge Kommissær Phil Hogan om, hvordan man kan afhjælpe presset på mælkeproducenterne og stabilisere deres indtægt. Blandt årsagerne til prisfaldet er det russiske forbud mod import fra EU, ophøret af mælkekvoter i 2015 og et fald i den globale efterspørgsel. (Læs mere: Mælkepriser: Debat om hjælp til mælkeproducenterne )

 

Ved åbningen af samlingen hyldede Europa-Parlamentets formand Martin Schulz det tidligere italienske medlem Marco Pannella, der døde den 19. maj. Schulz huskede Pannella som en lidenskabelig forsvarer af menneskerettigheder, pacifisme og pluralisme samt en stærk modstander af dødsstraf, en fortaler for fængsledes rettigheder, LGBT-rettigheder og en tidlig fortaler for ligestilling mellem mænd og kvinder. (Læs mere: Åbning af samlingen: Parlamentet mindes Marco Pannella )

 

I de senere år er valutaer som Bitcoin dukket op, som ikke er udstedt af banker, men findes i den digitale verden og er afhængig af offentlige og fælles databaser for at få mellemværender og transaktioner verificeret. En betænkning, der bliver debatteret den 25. maj og stemt den 26. maj ønsker, at EU opretter en task force til at overvåge udviklingen på dette område og forberede sig på at træde til med regler. Vi talte til Europa-Parlamentets ordfører Jakob von Weizsäcker (S & D, Tyskland). (Læs mere: Virtuelle valutaer: "Teknologien er under hastig udvikling, og vi må følge med " )
