German Federal Minister visited Nortal

Last week, Germany Federal Minister Dr. Volker Wissing visited our headquarters in Tallinn as part of his visit to the Baltic states. Dr. Wissing is a keen promoter of intensifying exchange of experiences and his idea of European innovation club. Spontaneously, our CEO Priit Alamäe declared the evening reception the inaugural meeting of the Estonian branch of the German-Baltic Innovation Club.

Germany can learn a lot from the Baltic states, thinks Volker Wissing. The Federal Minister for Digital Affairs and Transport is therefore seeking intensive contact – in the interests of good regulation in Europe that is open to innovation and technology. One focus of his trip to the Baltic States, which took him to our headquarters in Tallinn , among other places, was digital policy, which is being pursued ambitiously in the Baltic states. Volker Wissing is seeking closer cooperation.

During an evening reception, Wissing met with representatives of the Estonian IT industry at our office in Tallinn. He promoted an intensification of the exchange of experience between Germany and the Baltic states and his idea of an innovation club for Europe. Spontaneously, our CEO Priit Alamäe declared the evening reception the inaugural meeting of the Estonian section of the German-Baltic Innovation Club.

Germany can learn from digitalization in Estonia

We have Estonian roots, nearly 2,000 employees and expanding global operations. Among other things, we are proud to have played an integral role in the development of about 40 percent of e-Estonia, one of the most advanced digital societies in the world.

In Germany, we are also driving digitization for the private sector and government through its five sites. For example, the company has played a key role in the e-billing and bliggit (city app for Wuppertal) projects, as well as serving as a data trustee in healthcare, digitizing IHK organizations, and more.

We accordingly have deep experience in building a digital state. The company leverages this expertise to help governments around the world move government, healthcare and business forward.

Priit Alamäe, CEO and Founder of Nortal, said, “We recognize that the path of digitalization is unique to each country and requires a deep understanding of both local conditions and global technological developments. However, basic ideas and approaches can be adapted. We support Germany’s efforts to establish a German-Baltic innovation club with our expertise. We believe that collaboration is the key to implementing digitization, sustainability and efficiency across the board.”
