“One of the aims of our Presidency is to proceed forcefully with e-Health, or the digitalisation of health data in Europe. Cooperation between Croatia and Estonia in launching the exchange of health data has progressed excellently this year. In addition, Croatia is very interested in introducing digital prescriptions in the European Union. This is a very specific example of how digital solutions can make the lives of people more comfortable and the functioning of the state more efficient,” Prime Minister Ratas said.
Ratas invited Plenković, along with all other leaders of the EU, to the Digital Summit held in Tallinn on 29 September. The summit will focus on e-government services, digital development of the economy and society, and the security and confidentiality of cyber space.
“I have heard the opinions, proposals and concerns about issues from the migration crisis to Brexit of 27 member states, prior to and in the beginning of our Presidency. All these issues are relevant, and it is understandable that they require the common efforts of the EU countries to be resolved. However, the people are also looking for inspiration and visions. And this is what we would like to offer in Tallinn in the end of September – we will cast a glance into the future and discuss how to preserve the leading role of Europe globally in the digital economy, industry and e-government services,” Prime Minister Ratas stated.
