EUTA Members discuss digital priorities and future vision

EUTA Members discuss digital priorities and future vision

On 7 May members of the European Tech Alliance (EUTA) met in Brussels for the Alliance’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). Following introductions by our President Gianpiero Lotito and Chair Magdalena Piech, members discussed how the EUTA can provide an even stronger voice for European tech companies.

Members of the EUTA refined how the Alliance can continue to engage with stakeholders to better project the diverse views and voices of the European tech sector. In particular, members agreed that the EUTA will develop its shared vision as the Alliance continues its commitment to better inform policymakers about the opportunities of a digital future and how the digital sector can flourish with a considered and balanced political environment.

The Alliance lived up to its commitment to engage with stakeholders as members held discussions with the European Commission on the EU’s key digital priorities for the next five years. Members exchanged views with Jörgen Gren, Cabinet Expert to Commission Vice-President Andrus Ansip, on the intentions of the European Commission in digital policies for 2019-2024. This was followed by discussions with Werner Stengg, the European Commission’s Head of Unit for eCommerce and Platforms, on the past and future intentions of DG CONNECT.

The European Tech Alliance looks forward to the year ahead as we continue to provide a strong voice for European tech and present our vision for an even more prosperous digital future.
