The Digital Single Market is a cornerstone in the European strategy to realize the potential to lead in the global digital economy. However, fragmentation and barriers that do not exist in the physical Single Market are holding digital Europe back.

According to the newest calculations, bringing down the digital barriers, within Europe, could contribute an additional €415 billion to the European GDP by expanding markets, fostering better services at better prices, offer more choice and create new sources of employment.

For many years, Denmark has worked to overcome the lack of interoperability on national and local level and move administrative procedures and welfare services from lengthy to quicker, from time-consuming to more simple and from costly to cheaper. Thus, Denmark has a long tradition of digitization and has been ranked as world-leading and trendsetting in several international surveys. According to the recent EU-study DESI (The Digital Economy and Society Index), Denmark is the most digital country in the union.
