A single market that works for all in society
The creation of an integrated single market of over 500 million consumers has been a huge success for Europe and brought choice, innovation and prosperity for Europeans, but it needs sensible, efficient regulation to ensure it works for citizens. New technological and economic developments must help tackle social inequalities and discrimination, create jobs, and promote openness, fairness, transparency, sustainability and accountability in our society.
Our work on the internal market and consumer affairs
The S&Ds are champions of stronger consumer protection, especially for vulnerable groups. We will keep fighting for better information and protection for consumers to make sure citizens can have confidence in the goods and services available in the EU.
