DIGITALEUROPE comments - Priorities of Tech and Digital Industries

DIGITALEUROPE comments - Priorities of Tech and Digital Industries

DIGITALEUROPE’s vision is of a European Union that nurtures and supports digital technology industries, and that prospers from the jobs we provide, the innovation and economic benefits we deliver and the societal challenges we address.

DIGITALEUROPE commends the European Commission for making digital a top priority for Europe and welcomes the timely delivery of the European Commission’s Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy.

We stress that the acid test for the DSM strategy is the impact it will have on economic growth and job creation in Europe. In order to achieve these goals, the implementation of the DSM strategy should be guided by the following general principles:

1. Be pro-innovation and pro-competition.

2. Adopt simple and flexible rules for businesses and consumers.

3. Recognise the global nature of digital and remain open to free trade.

4. Involve and consult regularly with all interested stakeholders.

DIGITALEUROPE will act as a trusted partner in the implementation of the DSM so that the much expected benefits of the DSM in terms of growth and jobs can be enjoyed by European citizens and businesses as early as possible.

DIGITALEUROPE wants to work further with the Commission to see that DSM principles are applicable in Trans-Atlantic context as well, such as TTIP and regulatory and policy dialogues.
