Europe's future must be underpinned by positive vision for digital and Brexit
techUK responds to State of the European Union speech by Commission President Juncker
Commenting on today’s State of the European Union speech by Commission President Juncker, Charlotte Holloway, Policy Director at techUK, commented:
“The Commission must remain focused on delivering on jobs and inclusive growth powered by digital over the coming difficult period. It is in the clear interests of UK and European consumers and businesses to achieve an effective Digital Single Market that is future-focused and biased towards innovation. However, the tech industry is concerned that current proposals risk straying from that objective in a number of areas.”
“A smooth Brexit transition will be essential for Europe’s deeply integrated digital economies. Europe’s institutions must remain resolutely focused on trade, underpinned by data flows, innovation and collaboration.”
