Iceland has been a part of the Nordic Smart Government project from the very beginning. Statistics Iceland joined the Icelandic team and are contributing to the cooperative work packages working towards making the NSG vision a reality.
Statistics Iceland recently published new statistics on the structure of businesses in Iceland. The business population consists of around 30 thousand enterprises, where 94% falls in the micro category (less than 10 employees) and the rest are mainly SME‘s. The vision of NSG for less administrative burden and supporting growth and innovation for SME’s should therefore be of great relevance for the Icelandic business sector.
