According to Minister of Communications Suvi Lindén, implementation of the EU's digital strategy should be seen as a challenge that cuts across the administration both in the Commission and nationally. Ms Lindén considers that all sectors of the administration should make plans to use information and communications technology to improve productivity and support economic growth.

Ms Lindén discussed the issue with the European Commission's Vice-President Neelie Kroes on 30th August in Helsinki. Ms Kroes is responsible for issues related to digital content and services in the Commission.
