European policy should focus more on digitisation

Europees beleid zou zich sterker moeten richten op digitalisering

The organisation of companies in the tech industry, Digital Europe, has issued a report on the further digitisation of European industry. Of the total EU budget, 10% should be spent on digitisation, this compared to 3% today. In addition, the EU should strengthen its commitment to open markets and fair global competition. At a symposium of the Dutch House of Representatives, European Commissioner Margrethe Vestager explained the frameworks used by the European Commission when it comes to further digitisation of the economy and society, such as striving for honesty and trust, and achieving social goals.
