Second, we must step up our efforts to create a truly digital single market
by 2015. The digital economy is expanding rapidly but cross-border trade
remains low and creativity is stifled by a complex web of differing
national copyright regimes. Action is needed at the EU level to provide
businesses and consumers with the means and the confidence to trade
on-line, by simplifying licensing, building an efficient framework for
copyright, providing a secure and affordable system for cross-border
on-line payments, establishing on-line dispute resolution mechanisms for
cross-border on-line transactions and amending the EU framework for digital
signatures. We should build on the recent proposals of the Commission,
without reopening the e-commerce directive, to create a system that
balances the interests of consumers, businesses and rights holders, and
spurs innovation, creative activity and growth. We must also continue our
efforts to build modern infrastructure to provide better broadband coverage
and take-up and extend and promote e-government services to simplify the
start up and running of businesses and aid the mobility of workers.
