EuroISPA supports European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s initiative to reorganize the Commission’s internal distribution of portfolios. The prioritization of ICT and Digital matters is something EuroISPA has long been advocating and the restructuring of the Commission is one further step in this direction.
By uniting past portfolios, such as copyright, IPR enforcement and e-commerce under one Commissioner, EuroISPA believes it will be easier to develop more comprehensive digital policies in the future. Therefore EuroISPA welcomes the Commission’s new structure as proposed by Juncker.
“Digital matters are a crosscutting issue and thus the merger of such significant portfolios is targeted for an innovative internet policy”, says EuroISPA President Oliver Süme.
