  • A technical infrastructure, for uniting all the disparate IT systems into a single environment, particularly that of Digital Identity – the core mechanism for commonality across multiple systems, as well as other key foundations notably the Blockchain and a national integration platform like Estonia’s X-Road system.
  • A digital learning nation – Online learning is ubiquitous, modernizing our schooling, empowering the disadvantaged with new skill sets and integrated with businesses to form route to work pathways.
  • A nation of digital entrepreneurs – These skills are married with support programs and technology accelerators to enable the fast-tracked launch of a myriad of new digital businesses.
