Making a profound commitment to government openness.
The former Soviet state of Estonia leads the world in terms of internet freedom. When it threw out its ‘legacy technology’ upon independence from the USSR in 1991, legislators made a profound commitment to government openness, allowing it to pioneer online government services such as e-health, e-education and e-voting. It now produces more tech start-ups per capita than any other country in Europe.
