Reforming the regulatory framework for electronic communications networks and services: Implementation Appraisal

25-08-2016

A set of legislative and non-legislative proposals to reform the regulatory framework for eCommunications is expected in September 2016. At the time of writing this briefing, the REFIT evaluation of the current framework was still ongoing and is likely to be published only together with the proposals. In the meantime, the results of the dedicated public consultation held by the European Commission in 2015 confirmed the framework's overall effectiveness in fostering competition and, to a certain extent ...

A set of legislative and non-legislative proposals to reform the regulatory framework for eCommunications is expected in September 2016. At the time of writing this briefing, the REFIT evaluation of the current framework was still ongoing and is likely to be published only together with the proposals. In the meantime, the results of the dedicated public consultation held by the European Commission in 2015 confirmed the framework's overall effectiveness in fostering competition and, to a certain extent, citizens' interests. The relevance and EU added value of the framework were also confirmed, as stakeholders agreed that some form of ex ante regulation of the sector would still be needed in the future to maintain competition. Conversely, the consultation together with other studies and publications analysing the framework's implementation indicated that results in terms of creating a true internal market for eCommunications remain mixed. In particular, market fragmentation can still be observed and a certain degree of inconsistency in the regulatory approaches followed by NRAs has been highlighted. Efficiency is another dimension where areas for improvement have been identified.

Precarious employment in Europe: patterns, trends and policy strategies

23-08-2016

This note by Policy Department A gives a summary of the study "Precarious employment in Europe: Patterns, trends and policy strategies". The study explores the risk of precariousness of different types of contract, using a set of indicators with a connection to quality of work. It finds that so-called "standard" contracts show the lowest risk levels, but have been continuously decreasing over the last decade. In the longer term they may be outnumbered by other types of employment relationships.

Financial Services Liberalisation and TiSA: Implications for EU Free Trade Agreements

26-07-2016

With 23 participating countries, including all of the world’s largest financial centres, covering the vast bulk of global financial services trade, the TiSA negotiations on financial services trade are strategically important for the EU. They are likely to deliver commitments and rules, which go significantly beyond the GATS package negotiated over two decades ago – and to extend their umbrella to a greater range of countries. In addition, the level of market access commitments ultimately incorporated ...

With 23 participating countries, including all of the world’s largest financial centres, covering the vast bulk of global financial services trade, the TiSA negotiations on financial services trade are strategically important for the EU. They are likely to deliver commitments and rules, which go significantly beyond the GATS package negotiated over two decades ago – and to extend their umbrella to a greater range of countries. In addition, the level of market access commitments ultimately incorporated into TiSA will set a new benchmark and reference point for future EU FTA negotiations. Depending on the outcome of remaining negotiations, the TiSA may also establish influential new and consolidated texts on such matters as data transfer, forced localisation, source code, regulatory transparency, and domestic regulation.

India and China: Too Close for Comfort?

15-07-2016

India and China — two emerging Asian giants — have historically been polar opposites in many ways and relations between them have been tense. In recent years, however, their co-operation has been improving and they have signed numerous bilateral agreements. From the EU’s perspective, it is crucial to monitor the relationship between these strategic partners. Not only do these two emerging countries have the two largest populations in the world, but projections suggest that they will together account ...

India and China — two emerging Asian giants — have historically been polar opposites in many ways and relations between them have been tense. In recent years, however, their co-operation has been improving and they have signed numerous bilateral agreements. From the EU’s perspective, it is crucial to monitor the relationship between these strategic partners. Not only do these two emerging countries have the two largest populations in the world, but projections suggest that they will together account for a significant share of the world economy by the middle of the century. The EU must be able to meet the regional and even global challenges presented by the rise of China and India.
