This paper outlines the B9+ vision and recommendations to D9+ and EU policy makers on the next steps for a digitalised Europe that enables national Governments, enterprise, innovators, and individuals to rise to the challenges of the 21st Century, creating further prosperity and resilience across Europe in the period 2024-2029 . Achieving the EU’s digital decade targets should remain a key political commitment for the EU and Member States. While progress has been made, we must address gaps in our digital readiness as a competitive imperative.

The B9+ calls on the D9+ and EU policymakers to:

  • Support, deepen and leverage our Single Market
  • Promote an open and ambitious EU digital trade agenda
  • Optimise conditions for investment and growth
  • Strengthen capacities that enable a successful Digital Europe
