Opening new markets worldwide for Europe's ICT industry: Commission launches public consultation
Opening new markets worldwide for Europe's ICT industry
The Commission launches today a public consultation to help strengthen the global position of Europe's Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industries by ensuring access to global markets. The consultation will run until 29 September 2007 and is open to all stakeholders, including industries, research community and consumer organisations. The Commission seeks to capture stakeholder views on market access and on regulatory issues so as to refine its EU strategy for international cooperation on ICT.
Today's consultation seeks to identify trade barriers and business opportunities that exist worldwide for Europe's ICT industry
[p]"Our ICT industry in Europe needs to think and be global," said the EU's Information Society and Media Commissioner Viviane Reding. "While we have been working hard to create a single telecoms market in Europe, we must not lose sight of the global picture. There are further markets to take abroad for Europe's ICT industry if we strengthen its competitiveness and remove barriers to trade in third countries. Today's consultation therefore seeks to identify trade barriers and business opportunities that exist worldwide for Europe's ICT industry."[/p] [p]With the public consultation launched today, the Commission aims to formulate a more ambitious, targeted international EU strategy for ICT that explores new markets for EU industries, improves the competitiveness of Europe's ICT industry in global markets and promotes EU interests worldwide.[/p] [p][link]http://www.europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=IP/07/988&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=en(Read the full press release)[/link][/p]
