US Congress Report cited PubAffairs Bruxelles event on the Digital Markets Act

We are pleased to announce that our event on the Digital Markets Act was cited by the US Congressional Research Service in the report on EU Digital Policy and International Trade.

Our debate entitled ‘Digital Markets Act: How to preserve innovation and competition in the EU digital economy?’, organised in collaboration with CCIA Europe, has been referenced in the following paragraph (page 6, footnote 23): “Through the DMA, the [European] commission also seeks to harmonize online competition regulation across the EU, but the proposal remains subject to debate. Officials from the commission, Parliament, and member states continue to examine the proposed regulation. Some of them have stressed the need to maintain flexibility by local authorities given the ex-ante approach for rules and automatic classification of certain companies as gatekeepers. Some stakeholders have raised concerns that the proposal lacks a clear market objective or impact assessment of the specific harm(s) the regulation aims to address”.

This highlights the increasing relevance of EU policy-making on the global stage. We are honoured that our event series was recognised as a valuable source and addressed to the Members of the US Congress.

Massimiliano Gobbato, PubAffairs Bruxelles Director for Communications and Institutional Relations stated: “We are proud of having been quoted by the US Congressional Research Service. This is the confirmation of both the relevance of the transatlantic dialogue and the necessity of a deeper exchange between European and American stakeholders”.
