Baltic News Network - - Front Page -

On Tues­day, 18 July, a meet­ing of the in­for­mal coun­cil of EU Com­pet­i­tive­ness and Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Min­is­ters took place in Tallinn. Dur­ing this meet­ing, mem­bers of the coun­cil signed a min­is­ter dec­la­ra­tion on 5G.

Latvia was rep­re­sented by Trans­port Min­istry’s par­lia­men­tary sec­re­tary Edgars Tavars, as BNN was in­formed by the min­istry.

Sign­ing the dec­la­ra­tion, EU telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions min­is­ters thereby demon­strated the in­ten­tion to make Europe the lead­ing re­gion in the world for the de­vel­op­ment of 5G mar­ket.

The dec­la­ra­tion pro­vides for an agree­ment on spe­cific steps EU mem­ber states are com­mit­ted to make in order to as­sist with the de­vel­op­ment of 5G and ser­vices as­so­ci­ated with it. Lat­vian Trans­port Min­istry notes that this dec­la­ra­tion will en­hance gen­eral guide­lines for the de­vel­op­ment of 5G stan­dards and will set the foun­da­tion for di­a­logues with in­ter­ested par­ties about 5G mat­ters.

«Ex­pan­sion of 5G in­fra­struc­ture is one of the most im­por­tant el­e­ments for con­nec­tiv­ity in the EU and im­prove­ment of com­pet­i­tive­ness, which would ben­e­fit con­sumers and man­u­fac­tur­ers in dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries. 5G net­works will se­cure all-en­com­pass­ing con­nec­tiv­ity among con­sumers of elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vices. With that, we ex­pect a wide ar­ray of ser­vices to be made avail­able in the 5G net­work in the fu­ture,» the min­istry ex­plains.
