Speech by Secretary of State for Digitalisation and Administrative Modernisation at ICEGOV Conference

«The challenge of keeping up with fast evolving technology

Digital government is powered, not just by the digital infrastructure of the Government’s agencies and public entities, but also by the digital infrastructure of the whole country, enabling the broad use of the digital public services by a digitally literate population.

The swiftness in which technology evolves tends to render things obsolete more quickly – not only our technological infrastructure, but also on the way government agencies are organized to answer citizens’ need.»
