About her talk : Building the Digital Nation: The Estonian Experience
The Internet and other advances in digital technology are enabling more people to live and work globally with greater freedom, independent of any fixed location. As a consequence, governments like ours in Estonia are evolving fast into borderless digital nations in order to better serve and benefit from the rise of these new world citizens.
Estonia has issued the strongest digital identity to 97% of its population for almost two decades and since 2014, tens of thousands of people from over 150 countries have become Estonian e-residents members of the new digital nation. This keynote will provide attendees with an overview on how Estonian transparent and trusted digital environment works and how it was possible to open the environment and e-services to non-residents.
