President of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, was guest of honor at the Confederation of Danish Industry on 6 November. The Confederation had invited selected partners, including BDF, to an exclusive business round table to discuss digitization and the Digital Single Market with the President. Estonia is well known as a digital frontrunner and President Ilves is personally warmly engaged in the matter.
Among topics discussed were cross-border digital services, e-readiness of the countries in the Baltic Sea Region, e-skills and security as well as collaboration between Danish and Estonian ICT companies.
President Ilves has taken part as a keynote speaker at several BDF events and has expressed his support to Top of Digital Europe.
BDF was represented by Torben Aaberg, Head of Public Affairs.
