Building consumers trust in online goods and services, improving infrastructure and promoting innovation are keys to unlocking the potential of the EU digital single market, which could generate €415 billion each year, Internal market and Industry MEPs said during a debate on Tuesday. Several MEPs also underlined the need to ensure net neutrality and avoid unnecessary red tape.

A draft report by rapporteurs Eveline Gebhardt (S&D, DE), for the Internal Market Committee, and Kaja Kallas (ALDE, ET), for the Industry Committee, sets out Parliament's response to the Digital Single Market strategy presented by the EU Commission on 6 May.


The report is to be put to the vote at a joint meeting of Internal Market and Industry committees on 14 December and by Parliament as a whole later in a plenary session in Strasbourg in January 2016.
