On November 11th, Julie spoke at an event in Westminster entitled “the EU/UK relationship in the future of the Single Digital Market”.
The Creative Economy across the UK employs nearly 3 million people and it has been one of the most resilient sectors during the economic crisis. Audiovisual, Media and Internet industries in particular are a key sector in the UK creative economy, for example Media City in Manchester. Those industries are, by nature, highly impacted by the Single Market Regulation.
In the context of current changes in the market brought by the digital revolution, revisions of EU regulation to reflect this fast changing technological reality and Brexit, there was a lot to discuss and clarify.
Therefore, the event aimed at exchanging practitioner and stakeholder views on the sector’s environment and address what works well and what needs to be reviewed.
Julie specifically introduced the work of EP committee on culture on the current revision of the EU Directive on Audio-visual and Media Services.
