1/06/2018 - As countries work to roll out digital technologies and infrastructure, equip people with digital skills, and try to ensure that the digital transformation brings the maximum economic and social benefits, Sweden will be the first country to have its progress formally reviewed by the OECD. OECD Reviews of Digital Transformation: Going Digital in Sweden will rate Sweden against other countries in areas like uptake of digital technologies and management of digital security, and will make recommendations for improved performance.
Sweden’s Minister of Housing and Digital Development Peter Eriksson and OECD Director of Science, Technology and Innovation Andrew Wyckoff will discuss the report’s findings at a press conference starting at 8.45 a.m. on Friday 15 June at the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation (Centralposthusets Aula, Mäster Samuelsgatan 70, Stockholm).
To register attendance, journalists are invited to contact Carl-Martin Vikingsson in the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation press office. For further information on the report, or to request an advance copy under embargo, please contact Catherine Bremer in the OECD Media Office (+33 1 4524 8097).
Working with over 100 countries, the OECD is a global policy forum that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
