The areas of particular focus are likely to include enhancing European co-ordination to remove the regulatory gaps which relate to cross-border issues, increasing pricing transparency and dealing with issues of market concentration and barriers to entry. The Commission is also threatening to take measures to unbundle ownership of network and supply activities to ensure greater access to the market.
