Booming collaborative economy needs EU-wide rules

With the digital economy booming, the collaborative economy is a fast-growing part of it and has the potential to create many more jobs and revenues. At an EPP Group hearing in the European Parliament, lawmakers and business leaders discussed the benefits and potential risks, and how to ensure this sector benefits as many Europeans as possible through a common EU approach. Anna Maria Corazza Bildt and Andreas Schwab of the EPP Group said the EU must evaluate what rules are needed to ensure a level playing field across the EU, regarding taxes, regulation and social and labour rights.
