Extracts from the press conference by Neelie Kroes on digital priorities for 2013/14

61 views

On 18 December 2012, the European Commission adopted a Communication entitled "The Digital Agenda for Europe – Driving European growth digitally". On this occasion, Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of the Digital Agenda, gave a press conference in Brussels and presented the new priorities for the digital economy and society. The digital economy is growing at seven times the rate of the rest of the economy, but this potential is currently held back by a patchy pan- European policy framework. The priorities follow a comprehensive policy review and will place new emphasis on the most transformative elements of the original 2010 Digital Agenda for Europe. The seven key areas to address are: stable broadband regulatory environment, financing public digital service infrastructures through Connecting Europe Facility loans, digital skills and jobs, cyber-security, copyright, pilot actions through the European Cloud Partnership and industrial strategy for micro- and nano-electronics.
