Estonia's Technological Rise
From occupation to tech revolution, Estonia is pioneering new systems for digital governance
From soviet satellite to tech leader, the sky’s the limit for Estonia. A technological world leader, the country is paving the way for e-governance and revolutionary global commerce.
"Necessity was the mother of invention", says Robert Krimmer, professor of governance at Tallin University. Looking for the most efficient way to rebuild after breaking away from the USSR, the country invested heavily in an online system and now leads the way when it comes to digital government. E-ambassador Anna Piperal sings its praises: "A country where you can do your taxes in three minutes. Where you can vote online from anywhere in the world and it’s still secure and safe."FULL SYNOPSIS
