Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

Thank you for getting back to me.
I do agree with your assessment that the personal data in the documents are not relevant to the requests and I do not need them transmitted.

However, the documents you send me only partially cover my request. You sent me communications initiated by Amazon to the DG (and thank you for that), but :
- You did not send me all the answers from the Commission, which make it hard for me to know if the meetings requested did take place.
- You did not send me reports and/or minutes of the meetings that took place
- You did not send me documents prepared for the purpose of the meetings and/or exchanged during the course of the meetings

I am therefore requesting an internal review.

Yours faithfully,

Laura Kayali
