“Estonia has been at the forefront of online public services for a few years is the best performing country in Europe in 2016,” the report states.

Estonia ranked number one in eGovernment users and in pre-filled forms. The small Baltic nation has also been designated at a country that is “running ahead”; these are countries “that perform well and that have been developing at a pace that allows them to further distance themselves from the EU average.”
