On 2 Sept BDF had the honor to host a visit by Estonia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.E. Marina Kaljurand. BDF took the opportunity to invite some of our members and partners in the digital sector to an exclusive round table with the minister.
The meeting discussed digital strengths and challenges of the Baltic Sea Region, including how we can further develop joint Nordic-Baltic digital initiatives to boost growth and competitiveness across the region. Among topics discussed were e-government and digital identity, trust and cyber security, e-skills and a common digital vision for the Baltic Sea Region.
The digital ambitions and performance of Estonia is well known and Mrs.Kaljurand is personally engaged in the topic. She has previously been Ambassador to Russia and the US. Mrs. Kaljurand was in Copenhagen to attend a Nordic-Baltic foreign ministers meeting.
