A well-regulated single market is key to unlocking prosperity, innovation and competitiveness Better enforcement and constant adjustment of EU consumer protection rules is important to protect consumers' rights and wellbeing.
We have many challenges and opportunities ahead, including further unlocking the potential of the digital single market, and deepening the integration of the single market in services. In particular, in a world witnessing rapid technological change, it is important to ensure policy consistency between the online and offline worlds, providing fairness and transparency safeguards to build citizens' trust in the internal market.

The committee works with Member States and the Commission to ensure that single market rules are practicable and implemented fully and on time.

It is a privilege to Chair this important Committee, and to work with Members from across the political spectrum to bring real benefits to consumers and businesses across the single market.
