About the Nation’s DX(Digital Transformation)

The highest expectation I have for the new Prime Minister Suga is the establishment of “digital agency”

Countries such as China are advancing in their own Nation’s DX (digital transformation), so I want Japan to not lose out and advance as well.

For that reason, I would like Japan to find excellent human resources from the digital native generation or IT-related companies as much as possible and appoint them to important posts.

If we can become a DX developed country like the ones below, just how convenient will it be for the people, and how much will the operating costs of the country be reduced?

Estonia:
With the national database “e-government, you can have access all administrative services with an IC chip ID card. In addition, 96% of the people file income tax returns on the Internet, and the introduction of IT in administrative infrastructure is progressing. Currently, it is a country that has a unique policy of issuing “virtual nationality” to people all over the world through a system called “eResidency”. I also possess that nationality.

Denmark :

In Denmark, which is a developed country of digital government, all master data of address and real estate information was created, and as a result of utilizing this, an economic effect of about 80 billion yen was produced in 5 years. Also, in Denmark, in the process of creating a law, it is checked whether the institutional design is suitable for the digital society and is described by a modeling method to clarify the business flow. As soon as the law is passed, it will be immediately created into the system and incorporated into social services.
