“The reality is that by 2020 there will be over 50 billion devices, from coffee makers to automobiles connected on the Internet. To take advantage of all the benefits which digitisation can bring, we need harmonised and adequate rules for new technologies. Therefore, the completion of the digital single market, I’m working on it is so important”.

“The development of technology and digitalization of business and trade occur regardless of national boundaries or the legislation. The point is to help the process and to make it easier for both developers and users through the appropriate legal framework at European level. On the one hand it will facilitate business, because he will have only one legal order with which to comply, not 28 as far. On the other side, all Europeans will have access to goods and services offered online in the whole of Europe, as well as adequate protection from cybercrime and data protection”, explained the Bulgarian MEP.
