Brussels, BELGIUM — As a new European Union leadership takes office, the Computer & Communications Industry Association offers recommendations on how technology can help solve Europe’s societal challenges.

CCIA is leading a delegation of tech companies to meet senior officials and startups in Zagreb Thursday and Friday ahead of Croatia taking over the Presidency of the Council of the EU for the first time on January 1.

The following can be attributed to CCIA Europe Vice President Christian Borggreen:

“The new EU leadership has the opportunity to ensure that Europe remains an innovative, competitive and attractive place to start a business, invest, and live. Technology is key to help solve Europe’s societal challenges such as climate change and aging populations.
We encourage the new EU leadership to first assess the impact of all the recent EU legislation and to ensure that future legislation is evidence-based, proportionate and future-proof.”

“Croatia will steer the Council in a crucial period when EU Member States will set the direction for the EU the next five year and also finalise negotiations on existing legislative proposals.”
