Spanish operators back new industry body DigitalES

Tuesday 28 March 2017 | 09:52 CET | News
The Spanish digital sector is backing the creation of a new industry association called DigitalES to be set up in the next few weeks, reports business daily Expansion. The industry body will welcome companies such as Telefonica, Orange, Vodafone, Ericsson, ZTE and Nokia, many of which left the country's longstanding association of electronic, IT and digital content providers, Ametic, due to discrepancies with its managing board. The companies had requested greater representation on Ametic's board but decided to leave and set up their own association after their proposal was voted down.
