Digital North declaration

Borderless access to digital services will make it easier for citizens and enterprises to carry out transactions, such as declaring income for taxation purposes, applying for an education programme, issuing or obtaining medication with an e-prescription or using bank services across borders in the Nordic-Baltic region. This is an important step in fulfilling the vision of being the most integrated region in the world.
