José Manuel Barroso, the former President of the European Commission, urged European governments to embrace open digital markets to allow entrepreneurs the capacity to innovate and grow.
Barroso, now non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs, bemoaned the fact that Europe has "28 mini-markets" instead of an open market system like the U.S.
He went on to say, "European governments should try and support the plans that the European Commission has put forward to have a fully integrated digital market.
"All of these digital revolutions will impact all sectors of our lives. From health conditions, to work and everything else, so we need new policies to increase the flexibility and mobility in our societies," Barroso added.
