Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] Why do we need all this investment in ICT? Because in almost any sector, from transportation to tourism to television, our businesses are going digital. In the future, companies will want to set up only in a connected economy: with access to broadband; with a digitally literate talent pool; and with easy access to a single market with a single rulebook. Already, where these conditions aren't met, Europe's small businesses are feeling the squeeze. And already we need to fight to keep Europe an attractive place for multinationals to invest, against tough competition from Silicon Valley, India and elsewhere.
