Neelie Kroes
Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda "Build, Connect, Grow": The road towards borderless eGovernment 6th Ministerial eGovernment Conference, Poznan Poznan, 17 November 2011

Poznan, 17 November 2011

Your Excellency, Minister Boni,

I am grateful for the good cooperation with the Polish presidency in organising this important Conference, and it is my pleasure to address it.
Last year I spoke at a similar event, under the Belgian presidency, right after we adopted the eGovernment Action Plan.
We discussed how we need to do more with less, how the promised eGovernment remained largely unfulfilled, how changes and reform in this area were long overdue.
Since then, these key ideas have not changed.
What has changed is that the economic crisis we face is yet more troubling.
For me the crisis underlines all the more the need to reform.
We should be not more conservative, but all the more ambitious, in our quest to make public efficiency savings.
We should not shy away from, but actively seek out, new market opportunities.
We should not be scared of, but embrace the possibilities of open data and joined-up service delivery.
Let me tell you my vision.
