Cities and regions step up their game to regulate online platforms and pave a safe way for SMEs into digital markets

The European Committee of the Regions strengthens its commitment to the EU’s wide-ranging legislative project of reinforcing democratic control over dominant internet platforms and restoring a levelled online economy that works for SMEs and individual consumers alike. During the June plenary session, the Committee’s members discussed an opinion which supports the European Commission’s intention of tougher regulation of digital markets and services while at the same time highlighting the innovations and competencies cities and regions may bring to bear for a sound and effective regulation. The CoR’s opinion on the Digital Services Act package is embedded into a broader net of initiatives aimed at sharpening the CoR’s profile as one of the EU’s drivers of an inclusive digital transformation.
