European business and consumer representatives united in a lukewarm welcome of the Commission's proposed New Deal for Consumers at the European Economic and Social Committee's plenary session on 20 September.

The digital gender gap is a consequence of discrimination against women, which already starts in early childhood, the EESC points out.

Le imprese che operano su piattaforme online e motori di ricerca potranno risolvere eventuali conflitti in modo extragiudiziale.
