Estonian foreign minister at the UN: Heal the digital divide

During a Franco-German-initiated Alliance for Multilateralism meeting convened during the 75th annual UN General Assembly, Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu highlighted that the digital divide must be eliminated as quickly as possible if overall resilience of societies is to be boosted worldwide. To this aim, Reinsalu called on states to join the global digital declaration initiated by Estonia and Singapore, which nearly 70 states have signed up to so far. To promote this declaration, Estonia and the United Arab Emirates will hold a global business forum in December 2020 that will provide a platform for the private and public sector to showcase novel digital solutions.
