About the Speech:

Mr Higgins provided an industry perspective on the future of the Digital Single Market in Europe. Within the Digital Agenda for Europe, the European Commission aims to boost the music download business, establish a single area for online payments and enhance consumer protection in cyberspace in order to promote the Digital Single Market. In this context, Mr Higgins discussed his views on the barriers that exist to establishing a truly integrated digital market and the opportunities for economic growth that exist beyond them.

About the Speaker:

Since November 2011, Mr Higgins has served as Director General of DIGITALEUROPE, an assocation for the digital technology industry in Europe comprising some of the world’s largest IT, telecoms and communications companies. Prior to this, he was also Director General of Intellect, DIGITALEUROPE’s UK member association, for nine years. In 2005, Queen Elizabeth II appointed him a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) for his services to the UK IT industry.
