Joint Industry Letter Tallinn Digital Summit-Steering the European Digital Single Market proposals towards success

Re: Steering the European Digital Single Market proposals towards success

Dear Prime Minister, Dear President,

Our Associations, which represent the tech and telecoms industry as well as start-ups, welcome the upcoming Tallinn Digital Summit. This is a crucial moment for Europe’s heads of state and government to discuss how Europe can fully embrace digital transformation, which is expected to contribute over €1 trillion to Europe’s GDP by 2020.

At the same time, we urge the European institutions to use this occasion to re-evaluate the current direction of the EU Digital Single Market legislative debate and compare it with its original objectives. We worry that many of the proposals currently under negotiation are drifting off-course, endangering Europe’s digital economy and its global leadership. Europe will only achieve a thriving Digital Single Market if new EU legislation will promote rather than hamper digitisation, create one single legal framework rather than 28 and favour market-led, bottomup innovative solutions as opposed to top-down overregulation.
