The Information Society Directorate is responsible for the strategic planning and promotion of Slovenia’s digital transformation. It prepares national strategic development documents in the field of the information society and electronic communications, and coordinates and implements development measures. The Directorate’s strategic objective is to digitalise all areas of social life through innovative and intensive use of digital technologies and the internet, as this is of crucial importance to the competitiveness of the economy, to achieving a high level of prosperity and to ensuring that the state holds a suitable position in a globalised digital society.

It coordinates the implementation of measures to promote the overall digitalisation of society at the inter-ministerial and inter-sectoral levels, coordinating with external stakeholders from the business sector and non-governmental organisations and stakeholders from the fields of education and research through the Slovenian Digital Coalition. Within the scope of its work, the Directorate represents the Republic of Slovenia in international organisations, such as EU (European Union), OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), ITU (International Telecommunication Union), ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers - the organisation responsible for adding and registering domain names), IGF (Internet Governance Forum), Eutelsat (European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations and the European Telecommunications Satellite Organization ). It is responsible for the supervision of providers of electronic trust services and, in the field of electronic communications and radio spectrum management, for the Agency for Communication Networks and Services of the Republic of Slovenia.

    Advanced digital technologies enable changes to existing business models and the creation of new ones, the development of new products and services, and thus increase the efficiency and competitiveness of the economy in general and contribute to the broader socio-economic development.

  • Electronic communications

    Economic and general development in a modern digital society is closely connected with the development of a high-quality broadband infrastructure that serves as the basis for the development and use of the internet.
