A delegation from the Commission took part in a Digital Single Market (DSM) event hosted by the Spanish Ministry for Industry, Energy and Tourism on 9 June 2015.
The event was opened by State Secretary Victor Calvo-Sotelo and followed by a presentation of the DSM strategy by Linda Corugedo Steneberg, Principal Advisor DG CONNECT. Two panels which discussed certain aspects of the strategy took place. The first focused on telecom reforms and the need to revisit the rules to ensure that very high speed broadband reaches every Europea. The second panel discussed on how e-commerce and digital platforms are transforming society and the economy.
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.
