ATHENS – Greece improved its position in the SEV Digital Maturity Index by two places in 2021, ranking 25th in the EU, though it still lagged behind the European average as other EU member-states moved faster, with Denmark remaining at the top of the list.
“Today, digital changes in the country are made rapidly. E-commerce grew 77% (the biggest percentage increase in Europe), remote working tripled and the digital transformation of the public sector has improved fundamentally, facilitating citizens’ everyday life. In 2021, more than 350 e-transactions were carried out through 1,300 digital services,” the Federation of Hellenic Enterprises (SEV) said in a report, adding that the improvement in the country’s position in the Digital Maturity Index reflected largely improvements in “policy & regulatory framework” and “infrastructure connectivity,” which moved three positions up. However, digital skills fell in 2021.
