Response to the public consultation on regulatory environment for platforms, online intermediaries, data and cloud computing and the collaborative economy

The Digital Single Market must remain a priority for the EU over the next years. With a completed and fully functioning Digital Single Market, Europe can gain 4% of GDP by 2020. Digital is borderless by definition and allows real-time connections between countries, companies, objects and citizens. Digital can truly be at the heart of Europe’s recovery, but only if the EU gives itself the means to trigger a real digital transformation. The EU must timely undertake the necessary actions to complete the Digital Single Market, ensuring free movement of goods, persons, services and capital and allowing individuals and businesses to seamlessly transfer, access and exercise online activities. Business Europe puts the collaborative economy and platforms at the core of the digital transformation.
