Focus on

EU telcos support new Industrial Strategy, call for Member States to step up budgetary ambition

 
ETNO welcomes the European Commission’s “Industrial Strategy” which recognises that a change of gear is needed in order to achieve global leadership through widespread digitisation of our rich and diverse industrial base. 5G, fibre networks and data-based services are firmly recognised as a major enabler of Europe’s industrial value-chains, including those of strategic importance.

ETNO therefore calls on all EU institutions and on Member States to support the Strategy through both concrete action and funding, with specific regard to budgetary commitments, competition law reform and demand generation measures.
