What the Commission is doing

The Commission is currently setting out its plans for building a capital markets union, making it easier for small businesses to raise money and making Europe a more attractive place to invest. In addition, a digital single market will make the EU's single market freedoms "go digital", with EU-wide rules for telecommunications services, copyright, data protection, or the management of radio spectrum.
