EU focuses on, and invests heavily in the 2020s ‘digital decade’

Wednesday, September 16,2020 at the European ‘State of the Union’, EU President Ursula von der Leyen delivered a wide ranging speech, on many different subjects.

One item that caught my attention was the new focus of the EU to make the “2020s” Europe’s “digital decade” – President von der Leyen committed the bloc to spending a fifth (€150 billion) of the €750 billion coronavirus support fund announced earlier this year on digital investments.
