Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas and Mohammad Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs in the Federal Government of the United Arab Emirates, signed a memorandum of cooperation in e-governance and ICT in Dubai today.

“Estonia and Dubai are the absolute top players when it comes to e-solutions,” Rõivas said, and expressed hope that the two countries can learn from each other’s experiences and also find opportunities for cooperation in the development of e-services.

Rõivas also met with Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Emir of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Rõivas and Al Maktoum stressed the need to strengthen political and economic relations between Estonia and the United Arab Emirates.

“The ICT-related cooperation memorandum creates good opportunities for the exchange of experiences and knowledge at the level of governments, and also simplifies entering the market in Dubai for Estonian companies,” Rõivas said.

The prime minister is accompanied by an Estonian business delegation, which also includes several leading IT companies.
