At the Global Leadership Summit in Gothenburg http://www.president.ee/en/official-duties/speeches/14374-at-the-global-leadership-summit-in-gothenburg http://www.president.ee/en/official-duties/speeches/14374-at-the-global-leadership-summit-in-gothenburg First, thank you for inviting me. Estonia and Volvo are perfect partners, because globally you employ close to 100 000 people. Estonia on the other hand has 117 000 people working in industry – everybody else is in services. Therefore, we are a perfect match. However, there are other similarities. Your annual turnover is 5 billions bigger than Estonia’s GDP. So we are actually very well matched.

Estonia is globally the only digitally transformed society that has the full support of its state.

First, I would have to prove to you why I believe that we already have a digitally transformed society.

Up until last year, we thought that we can have a digital environment and if something goes wrong – because as you know in digital it always does, as you are always in Beta versions —there could be a paper alternative. Then last year it went wrong as a lot of digital chips were withdrawn from global market. One billion in fact.

Most of them opened doors in factories, but for us and some other countries it worked as a digital identity. In those other countries, these cards were simply closed down – nothing happened, nobody noticed.

Obviously, there were no services linked to digital identity. In Estonia, however, we almost had a riot. Not because we closed down the services – we did not–, but because some ID-cards would not get the patch online, so people had to go to the Police and Boarder Guards` office to get the patch.

Ma teen seda nii sageli kui võimalik, et kõnnin äärelinnas ja mujal, et näha, kuidas inimesed seal elavad. See on väga huvitav."

"Keegi ei taha makse maksta," ütles ta, "kuid me arvasime, et kui me teeksime selle protsessi digitaalseks, oleks tulu suurepärane." Seejärel loodi era- ja avaliku sektori partnerluses digitaalne identiteet ID- kaart, mis iga kodanikule juurdepääsu paljudele teenustele.

We create legal space for that technology to come to Estonia and thrive," president of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid said yesterday during a speech to Volvo Group executives in Gothenburg, Sweden.
