French Presidency of the EU aims for rapid agreement on key digital policy files

The French Presidency of the EU aims to seal temporary agreements between the EU Member States and the European Parliament on the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act by the end of its mandate and possibly in early spring 2022. Council and Parliament would both be keen to see these two landmark legislative texts for the digital world in force by 2023. 

But behind the ambitious timetable, there are many different views and requests to discuss among the negotiators and it is foreseen that many compromises will have to be made. 

HOTREC sees the proposals made by both Institutions to the Digital Services Act as effective measures to address the longstanding issue of removing offers of illegal services from the Internet. On the Digital Markets Act, HOTREC strongly supports the European Parliament’s proposals to prevent digital gatekeepers from imposing narrow price parity clauses on business users and the requirement to offer more detailed and in-situ data on business users’ listings circulated on platforms. As such, HOTREC urges the EU Member States to accept these much-needed solutions for the European hospitality sector.
