Adoption of draft EP report in IMCO

On 3 May 2017, the draft report on the collaborative economy by MEP Nicola Danti was adopted by the IMCO committee.

The document also recognises the strong local dimension of the collaborative economy, a key aspect of the CoR opinion.
The report was approved in IMCO by 31 votes to one, with three abstentions, and will be voted in the European Parliament plenary session of 12-15 June.
