European Consumer Summit – Shaping the Consumer Policy for the future


The European Consumer Summit takes place today and tomorrow in Brussels. This year's edition will be dedicated to “Shaping the consumer policy of the future”. Discussion will focus on issues around the Digital Single Market, the Energy Union, the importance of better implementation and enforcement of the law, especially in the digital environment, and the role of debt advice for consumers to tackle situations of over-indebtedness.

On 1 June, the Summit will host plenary sessions dedicated to the analysis of the current political scenario through contributions provided by national and European high-level policy-makers. On 2 June, the discussions will focus on the future of consumer policy.

The European Consumer Summit is an annual forum gathering key European and international policy-makers and stakeholders, including representatives from the European Parliament, governments and national authorities, consumer organisations, academia and business. Over the years, the European Consumer Summit has become a valuable occasion to increase awareness on consumer policy and a key tool to mainstream consumer interests in EU policies. You can watch the live streaming here: 1 June and 2 June.
