Informal meeting of ministers of Telecommunications and Information Society ministers in Granada
Date: Mon, 04/12/2010 - 11:05
Granada, from 18 to 20 April
The EU Informal Ministerial Meeting of Telecommunications and the Information Society, to be held in Granada next April 18th – 20th 2010, represents the main event of the Spanish Presidency in this field. The EU faces, as its immediate challenges, the economic recovery and increased competition from other regions of the world. In this regard, and in order to reap the full benefits of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), the European Union must thoroughly undertake a reappraisal of ICTs as key enablers for economic growth, job creation, sustainability and social integration. The Granada Ministerial Declaration aims to be a milestone in the development of the new Digital Strategy, the all-encompassing vision promoted by the European Commission during the semester of the Spanish Presidency. This Strategy will contribute to consolidate the European technological leadership in this strategic sector, whose effects must reach citizens, businesses and Public Administrations alike.
