France and the Netherlands have joined forces to urge European Union lawmakers to impose tougher regulations on tech giants, including Facebook and Apple, in order to reduce their market power.

Regulators in Brussels are considering proposals to enforce tougher measures on larger platforms in order to prevent them abusing their dominant position.

According to a plan released on Thursday, the two countries want to force the biggest companies to give smaller competitors better access, share data on consumer behavior and be more transparent on how they gather information.
