Huawei welcomes President-elect Juncker’s vision for the new Commission, outlined today as he presented the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios along with a streamlined structure for the new College of Commissioners.
At Huawei, we have repeatedly called for mainstreaming the digital agenda into all aspects of European policy-making. We are delighted to see that the digital aspect has been hardwired into the reshaped Commission as a whole. By building digital into the Single Market portfolio, and setting up a digital ‘project team’ of Commissioners working together across policy boundaries, Mr Juncker has lived up to the promise outlined in his manifesto of taking action to achieve a connected digital single market.
As a company with a strong European footprint, Huawei is doing its part to help drive this process, investing heavily in our European R&D operations with a high staff localisation rate. We are eager to start working with the new Commission towards our common objective of building a better connected Europe and we hope that Mr Juncker’s approach will be endorsed by the European Parliament.Author : Huawei Europe
