The communications and media industries have a huge impact on individuals, business, consumers and citizens. The UK needs this sector to be innovative, energetic and competitive, ready to respond to the challenges presented by our ever changing communications environment, and as a key factor contributing to the success of our companies in an increasingly globalised economy.
The Government is aiding this process by working in cooperation with multilateral organisations, such as the European Union, the ITU, IMSO, the OECD and others to help develop and deliver appropriate policy that will assure effective and streamlined regulatory environments within Europe and more globally, that will allow businesses to operate effectively delivering full benefits to consumers.
The Europe and International (EI) unit is one of several industry-support teams in the Business Relations section of BIS's Business Group. EI is responsible for promoting better regulation principles in pursuit of proportionate market focused International and European regulatory environments for electronic communications services and content sectors, ensuring that European industry policy initiatives advance UK economic and commercial objectives. These are major drivers of UK growth and jobs, and contributing to Europe’s Lisbon Strategy for economic reform.
