The Commissioner appreciates that the CEO’s concerns are not only about shareholders but also
about what the company brings to society at large.
He restated that as a regulator he will pursue and protect the interests of European citizens. In
this regards, he is open to listen to everyone, but he appreciates it when businesses
acknowledge that, adopt a cooperative approach and start preparing to comply with the
upcoming new regulations.
The new platforms rules are proportioned and aim to address specific and well documented
problems without going beyond what is necessary. For example structural separation remedies
are tools of compliance, not an end in itself. Some ideas discussed outside of Europe seem in fact
to be more far reaching.
