EuroISPA welcomes the Commission’s new Work Programme

The European Internet Service Providers Association (EuroISPA) is committed to actively participate in the debate about the creation of a Single Market for telecoms and digital services, including the Connected Continent proposal, in order to encourage the development of a free, competitive and open telecommunications market. We see this as something of great benefit to society as a whole, but also essential to the healthy development of the Internet.

EuroISPA welcomes the publication of the European Commission’s 2015 Work Programme and notes, with satisfaction, that special emphasis is dedicated to the construction of a true Digital Single Market, including the reform for copyright, while other major reforms of the past Commission remain in the pipeline. In these areas EuroISPA is looking forward to continue contributing to discussions on the Digital Single Market in a constructive manner.

“The reform of copyright, as part of the establishment of the Digital Single Market, will be a fundamental test for the ambitious objectives of the new Commission” said Innocenzo Genna, Chair of EuroISPA’s Innovation and Growth committee.
