TABC Meeting with MEP Catherine Stihler to Discuss NGNs

The Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) released a paper on Next Generation Networks (NGNs) in February 2017, highlighting which regulatory approaches are best for the EU and U.S. to excel in ultrafast broadband networks. TABC believes that ICT technologies offer an incredible range of opportunities for companies and citizens worldwide, but at the same time policy makers need to engage actively with business in order to promote a fair environment for their deployment. To that end, Carlos Rodriguez Cocina, Europe Chair of TABC’s ICT Working Group, Tim Bennett, TABC Director-General/CEO, and Cosimo Avesani, TABC Policy Director, met with MEP Catherine Stihler (S&D; UK), Vice Chair of the EP Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) and Substitute Member in the EP Delegation for Relations with the United States, to discuss issues relating to NGNs.
