Arnaud Thysen, EBS Director General commented: “The EBS 2017 will take place at a critical time for Europe. A close dialogue between all stakeholders is key to re-establish trust and political will in the European project. We are delighted to work closely with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on providing a business contribution to a new narrative for Europe. As a global consultancy firm, TCS will bring a new energy to our projects and our mission”.
Amit Bajaj, CEO Europe at TCS, commented: “This year Europe will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome where the European Economic Community was first established. In recent decades the region has seen tremendous growth and prosperity, driven in large part by a progressive and innovative business community. As we look forward, there are undoubtedly challenges ahead but also many opportunities. Probably the single largest opportunity is the digital economy where the European Commission estimates growth of €415 billion a year if steps can be taken to support digital business.
He emphasized, “With the fourth industrial revolution bringing forth rapid change across all industries, and digital disruption reshaping entire sectors, it is essential that business and policy leaders come together to find the most inclusive way forward. We are honoured to be playing an even bigger part in driving that debate through the European Business Summit.”
