12th TIME Economic Forum - Between competition and Cooperation: the New Digital World

The network economy, 5G, Industry 4.0, digital financial system and AI have left the door open for the next stage of network and industry digitization. The development of network economy means that it is required to reform the regulatory environment. The driving force is the desire to increase the efficiency of making use of digital opportunities. The TIME Economic Forum brings people interested in the development of new economic law together.

During the current term of office of the EU authorities, key directives will be developed. They will define the legal framework for the functioning of the network economy. The emerging business models give competitive advantage to companies that are eager to cooperate Platforms 4.0 operating within the EU have already defined their main problems, which prepared them to open a dialogue with their country authorities and with the European Commission. Their goal is to describe and justify the changes that need to be implemented. Digital technology provides for more efficient management of resources within value chains that are now merging to form a global economic network. The growing importance of economies of scale gives the opportunity to better employ the potential of companies. Relying on digital industry is already a standard in the sector of globally operating companies. The condition for maintaining the competitiveness of the EU economy is to open the same opportunities before SMEs.
