“The announcements by Ansip will be critical to make sure we get the scale, the innovation we need in Europe,” said IBM’s Vice President of Governmental Programs in Europe Liam Benham at the 2015 European Business Summit.

Benham’s words come after EU Commissioner for Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip presented Europe’s Digital Single Market strategy.

“We need a level playing field across 500 million people. If you don’t do that, you won’t be able to compete with the US or Asia,” Benham added.
