DIGITALEUROPE Priorities for the Estonian Presidency of the council of the European Union

DIGITALEUROPE Priorities for the Estonian Presidency of the council of the European Union

INTRODUCTION

Vision – 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.

Mission – To foster, on behalf of our members, a business, policy and regulatory environment in Europe that best realises our vision. We will achieve this by working as positive partners with the European Institutions and other European and global bodies and, through our national trade associations, the member states of Europe.

DIGITALEUROPE commends the EU Institutions for making digital a top priority for Europe and welcomes the timely delivery of the 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.
