Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] First, not everyone gets this. I realise how much digital tools matter: and so do you. The EU's national leaders have started to realise it too. But it has not sunk through to everyone. Only the other week, I spoke with one MEP, and he was amazed – he thought this was just an issue for telecoms; only now does he see it's about connected cars, better industrial processes , better retail and logistics, and much much more. They realise it about, say, energy or transport networks – but the message has not got through about digital.
