European Commission adopts strategy for the digital single market

On 6 May 2015, the European Commission (EC) adopted the Digital Single Market Strategy, setting out a range of specific measures to be delivered by the end of 2016.

This strategy sets out 16 key actions under three pillars:

  • Better access for consumers and businesses to digital goods and services across Europe;
  • Creating the right conditions and a level playing field for digital networks and innovative services to flourish;
  • Maximising the growth potential of the digital economy.

The digital single market will be on the agenda of the European Council meeting of 25-26 June 2015.
