On October 5, the digital ministers of the European Union met with their Armenian, Azerbaijani, Belarusian, Georgian, Moldovan and Ukrainian counterparts to discuss cooperation opportunities in digital economy. The interest of the EU and the Eastern Partnership countries is to work closely together on digital issues so that the 70 million consumers in the EaP countries can also benefit from the opportunities of the digital single market.
“Estonia has strongly supported the digital growth of the Eastern Partnership countries through development cooperation programs. Estonian experts from the private sector and national e-services have advised the creation of e-states and cyber-security strategies for example in Georgia, Moldova, Armenia and Ukraine. A great example of successful cooperation was the e-health and population register development project in Moldova, supported by the expertise of the bright minds of Estonia,” said Urve Palo, Minister of Entrepreneurship and Information Technology.
