During this week’s plenary session in Strasbourg there was the official signing ceremony for the regulation establishing the Single Digital Gateway. This ceremony takes place when legislative reports have been through all the stages and approved by the Commission, Council and the European Parliament. This legislation was steered by MEP Marlene Mizzi. The President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, and Juliane Bogner-Strauss, Federal Minister within the Federal Chancellery for Women, Families and Youth, on behalf of the Austrian Presidency of the Council, signed the legislation.
MEP Marlene Mizzi said: “Today the European Union has achieved an important milestone, which makes it easier for citizens to interact with public authorities. This shall be made possible through the digitalisation of public services and the completion of the digital single market. We have delivered tangible benefits to our citizens which will save them time and money.”
This EU single entry point will be integrated in the “Your Europe” portal and will be available in all languages. It will provide access and links to national and EU web sites and web pages in a user-friendly way, to enable users to exercise their rights and comply with their obligations within the single market.
“It is such legislations which demonstrate the benefits of the EU to the citizens and the work undertaken by MEPs on their behalf, and therefore I am particularly satisfied to have been instrumental in steering this legislation through,” said MEP Mizzi.
