Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] Third: we want a sound e-communications framework. Regulators should be functionally independent; they should be professional and committed. But should also offer regular recommendations to their Ministries. That will allow more competition, lower costs, better services, bigger investments. Bringing the ICT boost to more businesses, consumers and citizens. So we are renewing our support for the Euro-Mediterranean Regulator Group EMERG. That has not been an easy discussion or an easy decision. And there is no use producing recommendations if no one listens or acts. So I am asking you to support and commit: regulators and governments; the EU and UfM; development banks and more.
