 FOR (+) This directive focuses on the economic aspects of the re-use of information rather than on access to information by citizens. It encourages Member States to make as much information available for re-use as possible. I voted in favour of this report which focuses on two main pillars, that of transparency and fair competition.

MIZZI
 FOR (+) Too often public data is keep in the hands of the public sector or is given to giants corporations preventing a larger use to develop new services and applications. This piece of legislation will give new business opportunities a greater use of large amounts of valuable data. The S&D group has been particularly active in ensuring that the public sector opens their data for new opportunities while preventing a loss in the quality of the public services. And those are some of the reasons why I gave my support to this legislation.
