Comments on the European Commission’s Consultations on the Digital Services Act and a Possible New Competition Tool

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 - 4:00pm

As the Commission considers updates and revisions to its digital regulatory framework, the Chamber recognizes and appreciates policymakers’ emphasis on deepening and strengthening the fundamentals of the European digital economy. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing economic lockdowns, digital services have proven even more essential than before to the continuity of business, policymaking, communication, and commerce. It is essential that Europe’s approach to digital policy be done in a way that unleashes the full potential of Europe’s digital economy, not as a tool for industrial policy to target certain firms or build national champions.

Please find the Chamber's full responses to both consultations attached.
