Vice-President Ansip: Talking digital in the United States

Breaking through barriers to build a Digital Single Market is a top priority for the European Commission“, Vice-President Andrus Ansip, in charge of the digital single market, will say later on Thursday in a speech at the Brookings Institute in Washington, United States.Our focus is firmly on creating economic growth, employment and making the most of the digital age. It will provide opportunities for trade, investment, innovation – not only for Europe, but globally – also for the United States,” Ansip will say. “Europe’s future DSM will provide equal conditions where all companies offering their goods or services in the EU are subject to the same rules“, he will add. “This will guarantee legal certainty and is ultimately good for investments and business, whichever country they come from. We want to encourage companies, whether European or not, to develop, invest and make the most out of our massive marketplace“, Ansip will affirm.
