December 6 (SeeNews) - The European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel has said she plans to unveil a plan to scrap mobile roaming fees between the EU and Western Balkan countries in May, Internet portal EurActiv has reported.
The European Commission's legal advisers are currently drafting a plan for the abolishment of mobile roaming charges to Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina, which will be presented at a meeting in Bulgaria in May 2018, EurActiv quoted Gabriel as saying on Tuesday.
"Definitely we need to do something more. But let’s keep calm and do it very seriously because the expectations in the region are huge," Gabriel said.
A summit on EU-Western Balkan relations will be held on May 17 in Sofia. Bulgaria will preside over the Council of the EU in the first half of 2018.
Bulgaria and the countries of the Western Balkans are preparing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for decreasing roaming changes, Bulgarian transport minister Ivaylo Moskovski said last month.
In June, Serbian trade and telecommunications ministry said it plans to request the European Commission to remove the mobile roaming charges for the EU candidates Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro.
