e-Estonia - We have built a digital society and so can you
10 Oct 2019
Techerati Keynote Theatre
Estonia is probably the only country in the world where 99% of the public services are available online 24/7. Only marriages, divorces and real-estate transactions are impossible online – you still have to get out of the house for those. Electronic ID was the first cornerstone of e-Estonia and enables Estonian citizens to benefit from convenient, safe and fast hassle-free e-services. Nearly every Estonian has an electronic ID. Thanks to a safe, convenient and flexible digital ecosystem, Estonia has reached an unprecedented level of transparency in governance and built broad trust in its digital society. As a result, Estonia saves over 1400 years of working time annually and has become a hassle-free environment for business and entrepreneurship. However, Estonia sees the natural next step in the evolution of the e-state as moving basic services into a digital mode. This means that things can be done for citizens automatically and in that sense invisibly.

Director, Fintech & Crypto, PwC Singapore
As the COO in one of the biggest insurance companies in Japan, I’ve arranged my team to take turn to come visit across these two days to get the latest industry knowledge. Because of my role, I am particularly interested in the risk management and security sessions. What we’re appreciated the most is that we can source a variety of content at one place, including solution providers, end-users and those institutions [IASA, ISC2 etc.]. It is very comprehensive.
COO, Tokio Marine Insurance Group
I’ve never visited an event of such massive scale featuring some of the most amazing brands and speakers here. I learnt a lot from attending the sessions like blockchain, digitisation, logistics and customer experience. I am very impressed with the breadth of the topics covered all under one roof over two days. I’ve also met many new suppliers I’ve never knew before and got to establish contact with them now. Coming to this event has given me so much value.
