Article 24 CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

One single word can decide about the inclusion or exclusion of million Europeans !

      Wasilios Katsioulis I presume you mean accessibility to public services ? This is a key issue of our single market act, as is the financing of such services. We are in a review process. On disabilities: within what we do (department for internal market and services) we have a policy on copyright for visually impaired, to promote access. we signed a memorandum of understanding with publishers, associations. Our colleages in the social affairs department have a wider strategy on disability issues.

    • Bengt Beier The internal market will need open borders for telecommunications as well. This means lower roaming charges but also lower international calling rates within the EU... Do you know about the campaign at http://fairroaming.org/ ?

    • European Commission Bengt Beier We have been working on roaming for a few years now, see http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/activities//roaming/index_en.htm and Digital Agenda for Europe

    • Wasilios Katsioulis 
      Accessibility is based on the needs and obligations of the UN convention on the rights of persons with disabilities (UN CRPD) and needs to cover public AND private services (eg Insurance, see article 25e UN CRPD) or accessibility of buildings etc. The currently blocked 5th Antidiscrimination directive contains many of these necessary adaptations for people with disabilities (more than 100 million Europeans are affected !). It would be very usefull if the commission will take steps to deblock this crucial directive which will lead directly to organic growth !

    • Matti Salakari Though Europe is the global market leader in online gambling services, there is no internal market for (online) gambling in the EU. Is the commission going to be able to convince the member states the real issues are cross-border and need EU-level action?

    • European Commission yes, we work in our department on ensuring access to basic banking services (30 million Europeans have no access, 6-7 millions are denied access), obligations for postal service operators, and other commission departments work on services such as transportation, energy, telecommunications.

    • European Commission ‎@Beatris the four freedoms (free movement of people, goods, services and capital) are indeed fundamental to the internal market.

      Specific actions are Infringements (tomorrow we launch some on services), More efficient assistance services for citizens and businesses (member states should step up their efforts here). We are also preparing legislation on easier recognition of national diplomas, and many more things.
