News / EU and Western Balkans mobile operators to work together on steps to start roaming charge reduction
European Union and Western Balkans mobile operators met on 19 October to discuss a roadmap for lowering the roaming charges between the EU and our region, at a meeting organised by the European Commission. EU Neighbourhood and Enlargement Commissioner Olivér Várhelyi, EU Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton, and Secretary General of the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) Majlinda Bregu addressed the meeting participants and it was agreed to continue the work on the steps that should lead to the start of the reduction of data roaming charges between the EU and the Western Balkans soon. The ultimate goal is that by 2027 there will be a reduction of roaming prices to close to national level.
The RCC, European Commission and mobile operators from the EU and the Western Balkans have met several times during 2021 and 2022, ensuring the sustainability and consistency of this process, addressing needs and challenges together. The RCC is committed to maintaining a more structured consultation process with the EU and Western Balkans mobile operators through the Advisory and Coordination Group that is set to be launched soon.
