e-Estonia is an incredible success story that grew out of a partnership between a forward-thinking government, pro-active IT sector and a switched-on, tech-savvy population. We had to create our own path to discover how to provide services in a form that did not exist yet and which should be available to everyone 24/7. Today, Estonia is a member of D9 (i.e. 9 Leading Digital Governments) and highlighted by the experts as an excellent example for other countries striving to establish an e-society.
