1349 detail 9706

During this morning’s joint IMCO and ITRE hearing, Sylvie Goulard has again shown strong leadership, the capacity to deliver on future EU initiatives for the single market and EU industry, with a clear commitment to work in the broader context of the Green New Deal and Digital agenda. With calm and determination, she answered all questions in a clear and authoritative way, once again demonstrating she is up to the job, and ready to deliver on the agenda agreed in July with President-elect Ursula von der Leyen.

"Sylvie Goulard was clear, precise and determined to deliver on all the different facets of her portfolio. I welcome her determination and willingness to engage with the Parliament to drive the internal market in the digital transition, and committed to avoid putting our European companies at disadvantages with their American and Chinese counterparts. I look forward to working closely with her to deliver on the agenda agreed in July with President-elect Ursula von der Leyen”, reacted Dita Charanzovà (ANO), Vice-President of the European Parliament and Renew Europe Coordinator for the Internal Market and Consumer protection Committee, immediately after the hearing of Sylvie Goulard, Commissioner-Designate in charge of Digital Economy and Society, Industry and SMEs as well as the Defence Industry and Space.

Martina Dlabajovà (ANO), Renew Europe Coordinator in the Industry, Research and Energy Committee added: "I am glad that Sylvie Goulard again provided a clear vision on the challenges our industries are facing, in particular the shift to digitalization where Europe needs to be open, but not disarmed. She presented an ambitious roadmap to overcome barriers, with a pragmatic approach towards the needs of our 24 million SMEs which are the engine for the European economy. I am convinced Europe needs to bring concrete solutions to our citizens and businesses; Sylvie Goulard will be a strong asset in the future college of the European Commission."
