New Council President can steer Europe towards Digital Leadership

Donald Tusk today takes office as President of the European Council representing the 28 EU Member States.  This inauguration completes the EU’s five year leadership change.

Mr Tusk’s challenges won’t be easy.  The EU is steering towards a lost decade, still struggling with weak economic recovery and high unemployment.  Business as usual is not an option.  The former leader of Poland, who championed the country’s economic miracle, can bring much needed urgency to EU reforms.

Being a talented leader, Mr Tusk can help the Council overcome its differences and paralysis by steering Europe from looming irrelevance towards leadership.

Some of Europe’s biggest challenges can be tackled by Mr Tusk and colleagues by embracing the Internet opportunity:

The European Council today has a talented and dynamic new leader with a track record of pushing through difficult reforms and achieving competitiveness and growth.  By encouraging EU Member States to embrace the Internet opportunity Mr Tusk can bring Europe to economic recovery and digital leadership.
