During the trip to France, the Ukrainian delegation visited one of the most famous and oldest exhibitions in the world on homeland security and safety - Milipol, which brings together professionals from this sector at all levels - from police and customs to Interpol and service companies.
Within the framework of the exhibition, an international conference "For the European Digital Decade" took place, at which the Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov spoke. The Ukrainian top official spoke about the progress made by the Ministry of Digital Transformation in the two years of its existence.
"We are building the digital state of the future with the most convenient online services. This is a demand of the time, because digital is not the future, it is the present. In two years of work, we managed to launch the world's first digital passports, one of the world's fastest business registrations and dozens of other services. Ukraine has what to demonstrate, knows how to surprise and what to offer the world. And the team of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine works 24/7 to increase the number of digital victories," Mykhailo Fedorov said in his statement.
Moreover, the Deputy Prime Minister took part in the round table European Digital Sovereignty: International Challenges for States and Actions in the Horizon 2030. Mykhailo Fedorov shared Ukraine's experience in combating cyberattacks. Participants also discussed the need to consolidate efforts to combat cybercrime.
Europe already has a good example of joining forces - the launch of COVID certificates. In a few months, the countries have developed a technical solution and successfully launched a single system that allows people to travel again. COVID certificates are an example of the fact that digitalization has become a major driver of change in the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has finally shown the need to go online and digitize everything that can be digitized. Digital services are more comfortable, safer and more affordable.
