Vice-President Andrus Ansip went "local" on 14 May 2015 with a visit to Warsaw. The visit was an opportunity to present and discuss widely the Digital Single Market Strategy.
He held a key-note speech and answered questions from around 300 participants at a conference open to the public on Digital Single Market: skills, economy and jobs. Questions focused on why roaming still had not ended and on investments in Polish companies, which are lagging behind. Vice-President Ansip also met with Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz and other ministers as well as digital startups and other digital stakeholders.
Going Local gives participants the opportunity to have a say in the development of the European Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy and for us to get a better understanding of national and local digital realities.
Senior European Commission staff members organise the Going Local events together with the Commission Representation in your country and the Digital Champion. Sometimes Commissioners working with aspects of the Digital Single Market are also involved.
