"The road to recovery is digital" is the main conclusion of EETT's 7th International Conference on "Digital Investments for Competitiveness and Recovery", that took place on June 14-15, 2012, in Athens, Greece.

In the midst of today's economic downturn, this year's discussion focused on the recovery and growth opportunities arising both from broadband investments and digital economy. More than 500 executives from the market and broadcast media as well as representatives from the European Union, national regulatory authorities and international organizations highlighted the growth prospects of the telecommunications sector. They also emphasized the need to apply a National Broadband Strategy, in line with the requirements of "Digital Agenda 2020", to achieve "broadband coverage everywhere and for everyone."

Among the issues discussed were the conditions and possibilities for investment in next generation access networks, the European experience and the national regulatory strategies, the market trends of fixed and mobile broadband services, the digital broadcasting services and the business prospects of spectrum utilization. Also, special attention was paid to the section focusing upon the framework and the business models of the Internet economy, both internationally and nationally.

For the seventh consecutive year, EETT's International Conference proved once again to be a successful event and a meeting point for the State, the Regulator and the Market to discuss innovative solutions and the regulatory, technical and commercial challenges and opportunities surrounding advanced high-end telecommunication infrastructures and the competitive growth of the Greek electronic communications market.
