An incomplete Digital Single Market means that today only 15 per cent of EU consumers shop online across borders; and only seven per cent of small and medium-sized enterprises sell cross-border.  This could be about to change dramatically. The European Digital Single Market is a priority for the European Commission and if its proposals are accepted it could transform the digital commercial landscape.

On 6 May the European Commission issued its proposals, in the form of 16 Actions, to create the EU Digital Single Market, a market where individuals and businesses can easily and fairly access online goods and services regardless of nationality or which Member State they are resident in.

Are the Council and the Parliament ready to take the difficult decisions required?  Can they look below the lobbying and find the right solutions for Europe’s digital future?  

Speakers:

Martin Bailey: Head of Unit for the Digital Single Market in DG CONNECT, EU Commission
Eric Célérier
: Senior economist, British Embassy Paris
Anthony Walker: Deputy CEO, Tech UK
Anne Lambert: UK Deputy Permanent Representative to the EU 2003-2008


Chair: Professor John Drew, Chancellor, and Director of iCES 

Registration at 17:30 at the Park Campus

This event is supported by the European Commission.
