“There is a lot of work ahead. We still need to work on expanding the digital culture of our public servants and citizens. We need to reach full cooperation between state and local authorities in the implementation of e-governance. We are confident that given support of both government representatives and international partners, we are up to this,” said Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.
President of Ukraine Mr Volodymyr Zelensky welcomes the Forum. The keynote speaker of the Forum is Mr Andrus Ansip, former Vice President of the European Commission.
