The Swedish Minister for Information Technology and Energy presented her country's IT strategy entitled 'IT in the service of mankind - a digital agenda for Sweden', on 6 October 2011. It is an integrated strategy for the coordination of IT initiatives which aims to make the country the world leader in the use of digitisation opportunities. With 143 measures, the digital agenda for Sweden identifies four strategic areas of actions: Ease and security of use of the Internet in everyday public and private life. Services that provide added value/benefits originating from the need of a more varied range of attractive and easy-to-use services by public and private actors. Infrastructure needed through investment in communication networks. The role of IT for social development - Increased digitisation affects all parts of society. The digital agenda for Sweden sets goals and challenges for the government in all policy fields. The resources to achieve the strategy goals are partly located at the Department of Industry, but they are also distributed over other government departments. In April 2011, the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting - SKL), published a strategy for eSociety with the aim to support the development of eGovernment in the municipal sector. With a national consensus on certain common ground rules for eGovernment, costs can be limited, the purchasing role strengthened and the thresholds for development of eGovernment and eServices reduced. This means a better service for individuals and businesses.
