Europe should not be left behind when it comes to 5G technology – Chancellor Schulz

Europe should not be left behind when it comes to 5G technology – Chancellor Schulz

On Monday, at the Nordic Summit on Security and Competitiveness in Stockholm, Chancellor Olaf Scholz called for the expansion of the 5G mobile network in Europe.

“We have to ensure that this advanced technology becomes common in Europe very soon, and that we do not fall behind other continents,” Schulz said.

He said that Europe should benefit from “the presence of the most advanced technology companies in the field of communications in Europe,” referring to the Swedish company Ericsson and its Finnish competitor Nokia, “which have achieved great success not only in Europe but also throughout the world.”

Schulz visited Ericsson on Monday with the heads of government of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The advisor said he also held talks with Nokia in Berlin.

These companies offer “very secure technology when it comes to security issues,” Schultz said, amid discussions about whether the government should ban telecom operators from using certain components from Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE in their 5G networks.
