The European Internet Services Providers Association signed a joint letter with other digital industry representatives to welcome the European Commission President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker. The letter states support in the creation of a truly Digital Europe as stated in the President-elect's manifesto.
To achieve the full potential of the economic and social contribution of digital technologies EuroISPA supports the appointment of a `Digital Commissioner´ working on the integration of the 'innovation principle' in all commission services. EuroISPA believes that this way Juncker could transform his Presidency into a truly 'Digital Presidency'.
Such an approach would support an economic growth that is empowered by a reinvigorated European ICT and Internet sector that can ensure European citizens and businesses enjoy the greatest choice and value.
„Our members represent a core part of the European digital infrastructure. The digital transformation of the European economy is of utmost interest for the European ISPs and we very much welcome the approach of President Juncker to create a fully digital Europe.“, said Oliver Sueme, President of EuroISPA.
