Interesting! Would have loved to get the insight from civil society/gov. officials. Issues linked with let's say loss of sovereignty are not something these private sectors companies really care about. One of the main challenge with globalization 4.0 is finding a way to strengthen the relation between states and the private sector because digital policy affecting all citizens needs to be made by people and actors that understand what is happening and coming our way in terms of technological developments.



The share of digital economy in the country's GDP improving tremendously, in the National or International markets the digital goods and services (both hardware, software) occupied major portion, Now.
