Today, September 1st, the Nordic Ministers of Business approved the Roadmap for Nordic Smart Government (NSG) at the meeting for the Nordic Ministers of Business. The roadmap of NSG defines the major strategic steps towards strengthening cross-border trade, supporting Nordic integration, and towards establishing an ecosystem based on the business data of Nordic SMEs.
The roadmap of NSG sets a direction for Nordic digitalization and collaboration over the coming years. The governments’ task is to create a framework for aligning the digital infrastructure in the Nordic region, and to involve the private and public sector in co-creation. The Nordic countries have different legislations and varying digital maturity in the market. Each government must therefore set a course for reaching the waypoints of this roadmap. The roadmap should not be regarded as a five-year plan set in stone, but more as an agile strategy that identifies the possible actions needed to realize the potential of NSG, step by step.
For additional, in-depth documentation of the NSG roadmap and the deliverables on which it is based, please read the NSG Roadmap Appendix. NSG will continue to facilitate Nordic collaboration on a common digital infrastructure, and involve stakeholders - from small and medium-sized businesses to business system vendors, credit institutions authorities etc. The future direction of the NSG roadmap and initiatives depends on close collaboration across the Nordic countries and we are looking forward to welcome new and old actors to join the next phase of the NSG programme.
