The minister emphasised that information and communication technology (ICT) plays a key role in the sustainable development of Slovenia. Our aim is to become a developed society "powered" by digital technologies, which bring benefits to society and connect people. He considers digitalisation to be very important because it helps us retain our economic competitive position at the global level.
