“Let’s talk about 2016 and consumers. What more needs to be done outside of the announcements in December”
Andrus Ansip, European Commission, Vice President Digital Single Market :
“We have to deal even with high parcel delivery prices.. The difference between domestic parcel delivery prices and cross border parcel delivery prices for example in the Netherlands is just 1.2 times. But there is 1 EU member state where this difference between domestic parcel delivery prices and cross border parcel delivery prices is even 22 times. Who is able to send parcels if they have to pay even 22 times more than they are paying domestically?
So we have to support e-commerce and those contract rules – they will help us and abolishing of geoblocking will help us. If we will make life easier in meaning of taxation, then it will help us and support those companies”
