The team of the Ministry of Digital Transformation presented the main projects of the Ministry of Digital Transformation and the progress of our country on the way towards digital transformation to the delegation from Estonia during an official visit. Diia application, the world's first passports in a smartphone, digital COVID-certificates, Diia.Signature, Diia City and other projects of the Ministry of Digital Transformation - all these create a new digital culture in Ukraine.
“We have a great idea and mission - to build the most convenient state in terms of receiving public services. To do this, we create a whole ecosystem of products – the Diia. More than 7 million Ukrainians already use the mobile application, while 7.5 million use the portal. We create accessible and understandable services online. We rethink the existing ones and remove the unnecessary ones. We are turning the state into a convenient service,” said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov.
The Deputy Prime Minister told about the main goals of the Ministry of Digital Transformation, as well as about the unique organizational structure that they have managed to build - the Ministry, shaping the policy, the Committee for Digital Transformation in the Verkhovna Rada, which helps pass the necessary laws for digitalization. And the CDTOs are digital deputies who already work in every ministry and public authority and are gradually appearing in regional administrations and city councils. These are people who use digital solutions to implement change at the local level and deal with electronic registers, processes and services.
First Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation Oleksiy Vyskub noted that Ukraine is the first country in the world with digital passports. And also one of the first countries whose COVID-certificates are recognized in the EU. Now 1.4 million Ukrainians have generated their certificates in the Diia.
Besides, at the meeting, Mstyslav Banik presented services in the Diia, such as Diia.Signature - electronic signature in a smartphone. Document sharing is a completely new logic of creating a digital copy of a document. Diia.QR is a business tool that allows one to quickly and easily obtain copies of customer documents. A pleasant surprise for the delegation was the fact that the Diia is not charged by mobile operators.
The projects Diia.Digital education, Diia.Business, development of Internet coverage in Ukraine, services for business and other projects of the Ministry of Digital Transformation were also among the topics for discussion.
Representatives of the delegation noted that Estonia and Ukraine have a common mission - to tell the world about the digital transformation and the opportunities it offers, as well as to declare themselves as advanced digital countries.
Mykhailo Fedorov also shared plans and new services that will be presented at the Diia Summit. He invited the Estonian delegation to visit the Diia Summit this autumn.
