ABSTRACT / Digital Single Market is one in which the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured and where individuals and businesses can seamlessly access and exercise online activities under conditions of fair competition, and a high level of consumer and personal data protection, irrespective of their nationality or place of residence. The event will be focused on questions where the EU is on the road towards achieving these goals, what major dilemmas the Commission faces and what the next major steps will be. The dialogue with the Vice-President will allow discussion on issues ranging from 5G, to defense against cyber-attacks, transnational E-commerce, or geo-blocking.
