Advice for policymakers
Trade: Strengthen export policies between the EU states
There are tools already set up which push the trade within the EU: the 0% VAT rate, legal base, intellectual property protection, etc. However, European businesses could still benefit from stronger inter-state, inter-regional trade instruments and platforms that would drive export and collaboration between the EU member states.
Trade: Unify public procurement.
Even though there are various international procurement programs, such as Tenderscout, where TeleSoftas also participate, there also is a gap for a well working one unified public procurement system in Europe. Such platform and unified public procurement policy would enable enterprise from all member states to provide tenders for public procurement within the EU.
Our next most crucial step for Europe to compete in the global digital sphere is combining the efforts and creating a strong unified European Digital Leadership Strategy, with policies that would centralise research technologies and particularly it’s appliances. While current research and appliance efforts of emerging technologies, such as AI, IoT and happen sporadically between the member states, the progress comes slower than it would with a centralised effort and more globalised approach for Global European Competitiveness within the technology R&D field.
Free movement of tech skills across EU
As an IT business, TeleSoftas sees a real necessity for a policy that would enable free movement of highly skilled individuals within the EU, beyond just R&D field and particularly within the IT field. This policy would be required to unify social security, income tax and emigration laws throughout member states to simplify the free movement of highly skilled individuals, reduce unnecessary bureaucracy and eventually enable the exchange of knowledge.
