Action Plan E-Commerce (Communication)

The Commission wishes to promote the digital single market by setting new framework conditions and removing obstacles. To this end, it presents an action plan.


The removal of obstacles to online trading strengthens the single market. Thus the collective management of copyrights facilitates the process of offering digital contents across borders. One-stop shop schemes for VAT obligations reduce administrative costs. The Commission should eliminate aid for broadband deployment and the stimulation of investment in fibre deployment. In promoting and regulating out-of-court dispute settlements, the EU should limit itself to matters of cross-border relevance.
