Abstract:

The European Commission on the 24 October 2001 published a communication from the Commission to the:
Council (of Ministers);
European Parliament;
Economic and Social committee;
Committee of the Regions

The communication COM (2001) 607 final dated 23.10.2001 has the title:
eEurope 2002: Creating a EU framework for the exploitation of Public Sector Information

Improved use of public sector information could turn this resource into a valuable asset for European citizens, businesses and administrations alike. While recognising the importance of public sector information for democratic and civic life, the European Commission has launched the Communication "eEurope 2002: Creating a EU Framework for the Exploitation of Public Sector Information" which focuses on the economic and internal market aspects of public sector information. It proposes a set of actions to overcome the market barriers that exist at a European level.
