A CONVERSATION WITH EUROPEAN COMMISSIONER FOR THE INTERNAL MARKET THIERRY BRETON - The Atlantic Council’s Europe Center hosted an Atlantic Council Front Page conversation with European Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton on September 21, 2021.
The European Union continues to ramp up its capacity to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and address the many economic challenges it has exposed. With a soaring public vaccination rate and numerous proposals on the future of digital platform regulation, data flows, artificial intelligence, and supply chain resilience, the European Union is advancing an ambitious agenda on digital regulation and industrial policy for the future.
Commissioner Breton is deeply involved in many of the Commission’s efforts in these areas. Commissioner Breton joined the Atlantic Council for a discussion on Europe’s vaccination efforts, the European Union’s digital and industrial policy agendas, and cooperation with the United States in these areas.
The Europe Center presented this event as part of the Atlantic Council’s #ACFrontPage event series, our premier ideas platform spotlighting global leaders and championing constructive solutions to global challenges. From publishing timely commentary and analysis across the continent to providing a transatlantic platform for European leaders driving the crisis response, the Europe Center is combining foreign policy, economic, and business expertise to help re-imagine the post COVID-19 world.
