Joint CEO Statement: Europe needs to translate its digital ambitions into concrete actions

Europe needs to translate its digital ambitions into concrete actions: CEOs of Europe’s leading telecommunication companies call on EU policymakers to closely align Europe’s digital ambitions with a supportive policy and regulatory ecosystem:

Ahead of the FT-ETNO Tech & Politics Forum, the CEOs wrote that “In order to achieve these shared ambitions, we call for action in three areas: · A clear alignment between European digital leadership ambitions and competition policy
· Strong political buy in to ensure that regulatory action fosters investment in gigabit networks, which will require €300bn additional investment
· A renewed effort to rebalance the relationship between global technology giants and the European digital ecosystem

Europe needs a strong telecom sector and ecosystems. We stand ready to help institutions to further shape a policy environment that accelerates digitalization to the benefit of all European citizens and businesses.”
