This is also the matter of our security,” Prime Minister Kallas stated prior to the summit. “We need trusted connectivity, both in the physical and digital world. This means clear rules and cooperation with partners, with whom we share common values and interests. I am glad, that Estonia has many of those good partners. Within Tallinn Digital Summit we will have a chance to set goals,” Prime Minister added.
