German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted that Europe is lagging behind the global powers in the tech sector, speaking at an event called 'Digitising Europe: The Future of Made in Europe' in Berlin on Tuesday.

Merkel demanded European answers to data-driven business models, while preserving EU values, as she positioned the European tech industry behind China and the US.

Hinting at the situation surrounding 5G networks in Europe and Huawei's ambitions to gain a substantial share on the European markets including Germany, the chancellor doubted that region can keep up with the so-called global players.
