Indicator Status Evidence
Have you identified priority key cross-border public services that correspond to well defined needs? Yes In early 2016 we published a report "Cross-border Information Exchange and Digital Services Between Governments" http://julkaisut.valtioneuvosto.fi/handle/10024/74891 The report suggest few priority areas mainly with neighboring countries (and particularly with Estonia). We wish, however, to make one point: these cross-border service and data-exchange concerns mainly those between government agencies from different countries (G2G). We do believe that in G2G cooperation and services there is much more room for efficiency and effectiveness gains than with casual citizens cross border services (C2G). As the report shows there is quite wide data exchange going on between government agencies from different countries.
Have you agreed/committed by 2011 on a common list of key cross-border services that correspond to well defined needs? Yes The 5 cross-border services were identified in Poznan and later agreed by the eGov Expert Group as "Focus-areas for identifying cross-border digital public services and key enablers for cross-border services with a pan-European added value".
Have you implemented or do you have concrete plans to implement cross-border services? Yes Based on the joint declaration signed by Prime Ministers of Estonia (Taavi Rõivas) and Finland (Juha Sipilä) on 10 May 2016, government authorities from both countries have agreed on projects for digital data exchange in following areas: - Population registry data - Company registry data - Digital medical prescriptions - Social insurance benefits and payments - Health insurance benefits - Maritime registers, ship and seafarer certificates These data exchange services are planned to be launched between 2018-2019. Please note that these services are between government authorities. The only exception is the digital medical description that would be for the use of citizens (of Estonia and Finland), but this also requires data exchange between authorities.
