Discussions focused on Denmark’s digital path over recent decades and efforts to provide more efficient digital solutions and services for the citizens. Officials outlined the strategies implemented by the government, local administration and the private sector that have led to the digitalization of the public sector.

Exchanges also touched upon future challenges, in particular digital security, data protection and the need to safeguard the widespread confidence and trust in the public sector, vital for future digital developments.

“Denmark continues to be a digital frontrunner, making it a role model for other countries,” said Miladinovic. She continued: “While we must remain mindful of potential threats and continue efforts to strengthen our common efforts to mitigate security risks, it is clear that digital transformation is having a positive impact not only on business and trade but also on the individual and society as a whole. Denmark is teaching us that digitalization is unavoidable, and I am eager to continue working on facilitating co-operation and discussions among parliamentarians internationally aimed at increasing awareness and information exchange.”

As part of her visit to Copenhagen, Special Rapporteur Miladinovic also held bilateral meetings with OSCE PA Secretary General Roberto Montella and Serbian Ambassador to Denmark Jasmina Mitrovic-Maric.
