The Annual Activity Report for the year 2017 covers the activities of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT). A Connected Digital Single Market (DSM) constitutes one of the top priorities of President Juncker, which is implemented through the Commission’s 2015 DSM Strategy. The 2017 mid-term review of the Strategy shows that the Commission has delivered all main initiatives for building a true DSM but important pieces of legislation are still being discussed between the European Parliament and Council.
