Focus on
Telecom Industry Welcomes EU Institutions
for New Platform Rulebooks 

The European telecommunications industry welcomes the European Parliament’s adoption of the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA), resulting from the co-legislators’ provisional agreements earlier this year. The vote confirms Europe’s political commitment and vision to shape the societal and economic dynamics of digital platform ecosystems in line with its value system. 

The telecom industry has long advocated for the need to ensure fairness and contestability in digital markets. This objective is fully reflected in the final text of the DMA, which empowers the Commission with the ability to designate firms as digital gatekeepers, subject to upfront prohibitions and obligations to remedy such unfair behaviours. Once in force, the DMA will create new opportunities for market entrants to compete on an equal footing, with benefits for innovation and consumer choice.

Alessandro Cortesi on Digital Upskilling4All


 Skills requirements in the telecoms sector are rapidly changing due to constant technological innovation and market developments. The number of vacancies for highly skilled ICT roles is increasing exponentially and the sector cannot meet this demand by recruiting from the traditional ICT talent pool alone.

In order to bridge this skills gap, telcos are seeking to upskill their existing workforce and recruit new talent from a much broader diversity group. In the video, Mercer's Alessandro Cortesi shares insights on the Digital Upskilling for All project, which aimed to address those issues.
