Brigitte Lagrou, Project Manager BELTUG presented the latest version of the "Recommendations on Corporate Policy", the 5th update of our very appreciated paper which is available exclusively to BELTUG members.

Gregory Pankert, Partner at Arthur D. Little, gave us his take on the Belgian Telecom Landscape.  Arthur D. Little has released “A New Deal for the Telecom Sector in Belgium”, its first study on the Belgian telecom landscape, commissioned by the five major operators of the Belgian telecom market. It sheds some light on the role and contribution of the telecom sector to the Belgian economy and society, and unravels some of the major disruptions in the digital ecosystem. It also shows the critical role of the telecom operators in the digital value chain, and the effect of telecom network investments on the Belgian economy.

The study calls for a "Digital New Deal" on both a European and national level, based on a strategic long-term vision and the recovery of the European leadership in the digital economy. Click here to donwload the report and leaflet:
