Press conference by Andrus Ansip on the orientation debate on the Digital Single Market Strategy and on the read-out from the College meeting
On 25 March 2015, Andrus Ansip, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Single Market, gave a press conference on the conclusions of the weekly meeting of the Juncker Commission which was held on the same day. The College of Commissioners discussed the Digital Single Market Strategy due for adoption in May 2015.
Digital tools are becoming more and more pervasive. Whether you're studying, socialising, or shopping – online tools could well be helping you. But when it comes to using those opportunities, people and businesses face many barriers: from inefficient parcel deliveries across borders, to geo-blocking of your favourite films, music or other content.
The Commission wanted to trigger real change for consumers and businesses alike. A digital single market could generate up to €340 billion a year for the EU economy; it was a major priority of the Juncker Commission. #DigitalSingleMarketPHOTO
