On Tuesday, December 10, Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip and Finnish Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen sat down at their respective desks in Tallinn and Helsinki and concluded what they claim is the world's first digitally signed international agreement.
The agreement appropriately is about government e-Services.
According to Estonia e-Government
“As one of the central agreement of the Memorandum of Understanding, the national data exchange platforms will be developed together with Finland from now on. The greatest benefit arising from such platforms is that the citizens and institutions are required to provide data only once and hereafter, the data can be easily and securely shared.”
