Ilves: it should be possible to use digital signature in Baltic Sea region
"Let us start from acknowledging the digital signature between each other in the Baltic Sea region," he said.
President Toomas Hendrik Ilves said that a lot of work has to be done in the Baltic Sea states on implementing the information and communication technology possibilities. While Nordic states have excelled in using different e-applications, cross-border e-commerce isn’t working for us, Ilves said.
"The selection of services provided via Internet could also be wider. I see no reason why different parts of e-health, including digital prescriptions, digital pictures and digital health records could not operate in cross-border form," said Ilves, adding that privacy and safety rules have to be strictly adhered to.
