Iceland lands 4th place in eGovernment Benchmark 2022 and continues to climb the list, following Malta, Estonia, and Luxemburg.
This success results from the Icelandic Government's emphasis on digital public service through policy changes to become global leaders in digital. Through digital, Iceland aims to increase its competitiveness, provide better public service, improve infrastructure safety, and have a more modern work environment.
Digital Iceland has led this transformation over the last couple of years by supporting Icelandic institutions on their journey. Investing in digital has already proven fruitful both financially and in better public service.
The Icelandic government aims to make digital services the primary means of communication between its agencies and the Icelandic people, as it can simplify processes for all. Digital Iceland, operated by the ministry of finance and economic affairs, works toward these goals across all ministries and government agencies.
Bjarni Benediktsson, Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs:
"In the last few years we have set high goals in this important and constantly evolving field. I am very pleased to see those goals achieved by our excellent team. This result is a recognition of how hard we have worked and we are determined to build upon that work, aiming even higher in the coming the years to come ".
