At the Danish Parliament, Special Representative Mihail met with Kasper Roug, Vice-Chair of the Business Committee; Malte Larsen, Deputy Head of the Delegation of Denmark to the OSCE PA; and MPs Orla Hav and Lisbeth Bech-Nielsen. He also held meetings at the Danish Agency for Digitisation with Deputy Director General Mette Lindstrøm Lage and the international team.

Discussions focused on Denmark’s digital path over recent years and on the next-generation digital solutions introduced to provide more efficient services for Danish citizens. The interlocutors highlighted the strategies implemented by the government, local administration and the private sector that have led Denmark to become the most digital country in the EU, according to the European Commission. Mihail, who serves as Head of the Romanian Delegation to OSCE PA, learned about the current challenges for the country related to digital and cyber security, and shared Romania's experience in these fields.

Exchanges also touched upon how the COVID-19 has accelerated digitalization and the implications of the pandemic for the future of the digitalization process.

“Denmark’s digital transformation continues to be an example for other countries,” said Mihail. “Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, the digital solutions and strategies implemented during the pandemic became for Denmark another opportunity to show us the potential of a digitally transformed world.”

He added: “Digitalization is unavoidable. However, threats brought by a more digital world should not be underestimated. We, as parliamentarians and members of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, have a role to play. I am looking forward to continuing co-operating with the PA delegations to increase information exchange and awareness in the field of cybersecurity in OSCE participating States.”

During his visit to Denmark, Special Representative Mihail also participated to the OSCE PA Bureau on Monday, where he reported on his recent activities and future plans, and met with Romanian Ambassador to Denmark.
