The aim of Digital Lëtzebuerg’s initiative is to strengthen and consolidate the country’s position in the field of ICT and to elevate Luxembourg to a “high-tech” centre of excellence.
Over the past ten years, Luxembourg’s digital economy has experienced unprecedented growth. They began focusing on infrastructure, which in turn has created the most propitious environment for the growth of companies in the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector. Successive Luxembourg governments have made this focus their leading priority and have acted accordingly. Until now, Luxembourg has one of the best digital infrastructures in the world!
Luxembourg’s ranking among the top countries for ICT, the presence of numerous global players in the country as well as many start-ups and the creation of thousands of jobs all point to one conclusion:
ICT IS THE NEW VECTOR OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN LUXEMBOURG.
But outstanding infrastructure is not enough. The digital transformation affects all aspects of public and private life. The country must progress further to meet the demands of companies and the citizens of Luxembourg. It needs leaders who understand the challenges facing companies and citizens on a daily basis, and requires the introduction of legislation designed to back their development while providing public services that are adapted to their requirements.
After laying down the foundations and in order to ensure the long-term viability of the changes being made, the government of Luxembourg have sought to provide a common ground for the numerous public and private
initiatives that make up the country’s digital economy and society. Thus, in Autumn 2014, the Digital Luxembourg initiative was launched.
All the conditions are therefore in place to transform the outlook of the country’s leaders and the aspirations of the players into a day-to-day reality: through development, innovation and creation.
A DIGITAL MEDIUM IS THE TOOL OF CHOICE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TURN LUXEMBOURG INTO A SMART NATION AND A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE.
