Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers took part in the consultations of the European Commission regarding the Digital Services Act


The Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers took part in public consultations initiated by the European Commission regarding the Digital Services Act package that is being developed.

The new regulation on digital services commonly known as the Digital Services Act is a planned legislative initiative of the European Commission. Its main goal is to adapt European regulations to the evolving realities of the digital economy, including the revision of the e-commerce directive.

Until 8th September this year, the European Commission conducted public consultations to gather the views of businesses, organisations, and consumers from across Europe. The presented data will help create new high-quality regulations that will enable, among other thing, the effective regulation of platforms in the EU. The in-depth survey covered the following areas: user safety (including illegal products, content, and services), platform transparency, harmful content, intermediaries’ liability, the role of platforms serving as the so-called gatekeepers; but also general issues relating to the management of digital services in the single market.

Opinion of the Chief Economist of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers: inflation and growth – what might take place in the months to come

In January 2023, the consumer price index amounted to more than 17% year-on-year. This is in fact a very high inflation level; one that raises concerns with regard to inflation in the long term (I shall elaborate on that matter separately). This concern is further exacerbated by the fact that price increases in the euro area have clearly slowed down, whereas in Poland there are no signs of such trend. It seems, however, that in spite of negative signals, one should expect disinflation in the short term – judging from the seasonal price dynamics and a number of other factors…
