E-state development a vital issue worldwide

According to e-Governance Academy Development Director Hannes Astok, the large number of countries to be represented at the upcoming conference clearly indicates that e-state development has become a vital issue for many countries worldwide. “Based on 15 years of the e-Governance Academy’s cooperation with more than 60 countries, we can safely say that the key factor in e-state development is the availability of domestic initiators and experts,” Astok said according to an e-Governance Academy press release. “Purchasing services abroad or employing foreign experts is never sufficient. Estonia has evolved into an e-state through our own efforts, mistakes and successes. Doing things ourselves while also drawing on experiences gained elsewhere will also help other governments to develop their e-state solutions in a sustainable manner.”
