The mentioned associations, companies and organizations have formed a platform for the exchange of ideas, which will meet on a regular level, and as one of the first activities that resulted from the participants of this forum is sending an official initiative to the Ministry of Public Administration, Digital Society and Media.

With this initiative, the gathered ICT community proposed to MJUDDM the need to create a coordination and advisory body at the highest level, which would consist of representatives of the state, business associations, science and research, academia, teleoperators, banks and communities / associations dealing with digital transformation. Would aim primarily at accelerating the process of digital transformation in Montenegro. Also, in that request, the joint ICT community proposed to appoint representatives of the gathered associations, organizations and companies in the operational team for drafting the document of the Digital Transformation Strategy of Montenegro; so the gathered ICT community appointed two representatives in the operational team for the development of the Digital Transformation Strategy. In addition to the operational team, representatives of the ICT community will be part of the e-Government Council and the Consultative Group, which, along with the operational team, will work synergistically on the process of designing, writing and implementing the Digital Transformation Strategy of Montenegro.

We are pleased that the Ministry of Public Administration, Digital Society and Media of Montenegro has recognized the ICT sector as one of the essential participants in the process of drafting the Digital Transformation Strategy of Montenegrin society.
