The “Venice Declaration” for a more Digital Union, presented by the Italian Presidency and the European Commission today, will help boost the EU’S competitiveness and add more than 2000 billion euros to Europe’s GDP by 2030. BUSINESSEUROPE fully supports this new and strong commitment to drive Europe’s digital future. To reposition the EU as a world leader in this field, the digital economy must be at the heart of the EU growth strategy. “EU decision-makers must incentivise increasing investment without hampering competition. The EU must find the right balance here”, warned Markus J. Beyrer.
