The Juncker Commission came into office with a commitment to focus on delivering the initiatives needed to support its political priorities and address the issues that really matter to people in the EU. In May 2015, the Commission published an extensive package of new measures to improve and strengthen its better regulation policy in four areas where progress was considered necessary: a) opening up policymaking; b) utilising better tools for better policies; c) keeping the existing stock of legislation fit for purpose; d) Advancing a common agenda with other EU institutions and Member States.

The Commission's decision to create a Digital Single Market (to remove virtual borders, boost digital connectivity, and make it easier for consumers to access cross-border online content) is therefore a welcome move. But what does it mean for SMEs in practice? How will this affect their day-to-day running? And, given the lessons learnt from previous rapid changes, how do we make an "inclusive" success of the Digital Single Market?

The European maritime technology industry is an important sector in terms of employment, directly providing more than 500 000 jobs. Shipyards and firms manufacturing marine equipment make a significant contribution to the economic development of the regions where they are located, and across the entire supply chain, which is particularly important to SMEs. Each direct job in a European shipyard means, on average, seven jobs created in the region.
