Digital Agenda Europe: Going local in Norway (UPDATE)
Key Norwegian stakeholders contributed to the conference, which was hosted by the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation and opened by State Secretary Paul Chaffey.
The Digital Agenda for Norway is inspired by the Digital Agenda for Europe, and the Norwegian government is strongly emphasising ICT as a driver for innovation, growth and modernisation of the public sector. Digitisation will allow for a simpler and more effective communication with public administration both for citizens and businesses. In addition, the government has clearly stated that they want to have a strong focus on EU policy and the EEA agreement.
Madelin's visit is part of DG CONNECT's visit program "Going Local".
