We shop online, attend medical appointments, book holidays and attend events, so why is it that we still have to access public services mostly offline?

But is it changing?

Estonia is a European leader is eGovernment and has been for almost a decade. 

We are playing catch up in Ireland, but so are many countries. 

But the pandemic has expedited digital transformation by a decade and governments are leveraging this progress.


In today’s show I’m asking:

  • Should all public services be available online, and what needs to happen?
  •   I speak to Ossian Smyth, Minister of State with responsibility for Public Procurement, eGovernment and Circular Economy in Ireland.
