Joint press conference by Andrus Ansip, Vice-President of the EC, Günther Oettinger and Vĕra Jourová, Members of the EC, on the conclusions of the weekly meeting of the Juncker Commission

Andrus Ansip, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Single Market, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Digital Economy and Society, and Vĕra Jourová, Member of the EC in charge of Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, gave a joint press conference on the conclusions of the weekly meeting of the Juncker Commission which was held on the same day. They presented two proposals to better protect consumers who shop online across the EU and help businesses expand their online sales.
One of the Digital Market Strategy's pillars was to ensure better access for consumers and businesses to online goods and services across Europe. E-commerce was growing, but its full potential remained untapped both for businesses and consumers in Europe: only 12% of EU retailers selled online to consumers in other EU countries, while three times as many (37%) did so within their own country. Similarly, only 15% of consumers purchased online from another EU country, while roughly three times as many (44%) did so from their own country.
Andrus Ansip, Günther Oettinger and Vĕra Jourová also presented an action plan to modernise EU copyright rules. This "political preview" would be translated into legislative proposals and policy initiatives in the following six months, taking into account all inputs from several public consultations launched in Autumn 2015.
