Thierry Breton ready to deliver a strong agenda

After a strong performance in the joint ITRE and IMCO hearing, Renew Europe confirms its full support for Thierry Breton as the next Commissioner for the Internal Market. Thierry Breton has shown he has the vision, credentials and experience for this important portfolio.

Dita Charanzova (ANO, CZ): “Thierry Breton brings vital experience from the private sector to the European Commission. It’s important that the new College of Commissioners not only consists of career politicians.

I was happy to see Mr. Breton is ambitious and eager to finally complete the Digital Single Market by aiming to solve one of the most important missing pieces: the free movement of digital services. Mr. Breton was committed to preventing the fragmentation of digital services in Europe as well as keeping the limited liability clause of the e-commerce directive in place. It is clear that the Commissioner-designate shares our group’s priorities on the digital market.”

Martina Dlabajova (ANO, CZ): “Thierry Breton has great credentials and it clearly showed in the hearing. He is committed to a new common industrial policy that contributes to enhanced European competitiveness and provides jobs for people. I believe he is the person who can do this. He has the vision we expect from a Commissioner with such an important portfolio.”
