“I believe that we must make much better use of the great opportunities offered by digital technologies, which do not know any borders. To do so, we will need to have the courage to break down national silos in telecoms regulation, in copyright and data protection legislation, in the management of radio waves and in the application of competition law. That way, we can ensure that consumers can access services, music, movies and sports events on their electronic devices wherever they are in Europe.” – Jean-Claude Juncker

“The challenge of your grandparents’ and great-grandparents’ generation was to rebuild Europe. Rebuild Europe, from the ruins and destruction of war.

The challenge of your generation is to reshape Europe. To reinvent Europe. To build a better Europe.
A Europe that must certainly be social.”
