The ubiquitous digital single market

01-11-2017

The digital single market boosts the economy and improves quality of life through e-commerce and e-government. Market and government services are evolving from fixed to mobile platforms and becoming increasingly ubiquitous. These developments call for a European regulatory framework to develop cloud computing and borderless mobile data connectivity, while safeguarding privacy, personal data and cybersecurity. Parliament’s legislative achievements in constructing the European digital single market contribute an additional EUR 177 billion annually to European growth.
