Promoting fairness and transparency for business users of online intermediation services (A8-0444/2018 - Christel Schaldemose) PT  
 

O grupo S&D está comprometido em lutar por um ambiente digital justo e em melhorar este novo mundo digital. Este regulamento sobre plataformas online será outra peça no quebra-cabeças de uma Europa digital que deve funcionar para todos. As plataformas online, em muitos casos, multiplicaram a escolha e levaram a preços mais atraentes para os consumidores. Além disso, permitem muitas vezes aos utilizadores de pequenas empresas venderem facilmente os seus bens e serviços em toda a Europa, trazendo benefícios tangíveis para as nossas PME. Este Regulamento é um grande passo na direção correta. Vai começar a ser aplicado diretamente nos Estados-Membros já no próximo ano, pelo que as nossas empresas e consumidores começarão a ver muito em breve os benefícios de uma economia online mais justa.

Conseguimos obter um resultado muito bom nesta negociação, em particular através da introdução da nova "cadeia de valores da União".
