Consumer programme adopted

Today, the European Parliament has approved the Consumer Programme 2014-2020, with a budget of 189 mln euros. 

The focus of the new programme is on project which "empower vulnerable consumers, strengthen European consumer organisations and promote the development of price comparison websites."

The resolution was approved with a large majority, which seems to indicate a consensus among the various political parties. However, more nuanced positions may raise in the coming months as the programme takes shape.
