Digital Single Market
In order for consumers to reap its benefits, it is important that when the EU promotes the establishment of the Digital Single Market it facilitates cross-border e-commerce and tackles the problem of online territorial/geographical discrimination between consumers depending on their nationality and/or place of residence.
The EU must ensure businesses comply with competition rules and there is no discrimination against competitors to the detriment of consumers’ welfare. In a competitive market, manufacturers and retailers should respond to consumers’ preferences rather than dictate the terms on which consumers may access products.
