On 11/01/2012 during the joint press conference in Brussels, Michel Barnier, Member of the EC in charge of Internal Market and Services, Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, and John Dalli, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, presented an action plan on e-commerce and other online services with a target of doubling by 2015 the share of the Internet economy in the EU GDP, as well as that of online sales. To attain these objectives, the European Commission proposed actions to achieve: better access of consumers to products and services sold online across the EU (including music or films); an easier way to buy and pay for products online; more efficient and affordable delivery of products across Europe; more transparency on operators and prices on the internet; high speed internet and better communication infrastructure for more citizens; and better information and protection against abuses on the internet. The plan was part of the Digital Agenda and the Single Market Act and in response to the request from the European Council to submit a roadmap for the completion of the Digital Single Market by 2012.
