In his first interview as president of the organization, Krull discussed the three most important topics he and the management team will focus on moving forward. Those topics are smart government, smart economy and smart nation with additional sub-topics under each, including concrete action steps.
Underpinning all the focus areas is the question of the workforce:
“When talking about ICT sector, we can’t get around the question of the workforce. Be it IT-products or digitizing other industries – increasing value added per employee has to be the goal. Without it, improving standard of living in Estonia is simply not possible.”
