transfer of responsibility for public sector digitalization from the former Agency for Governmental Management, with the aim of further consolidating and strengthening public sector efficiency and effectiveness. The main responsibility of this Agency is to contribute to the fulfilment of political visions, strategy, understanding and development of relevant ICT suitable for the digitalization of public administration. Another ministry responsible for coordinating the management of the Danish e-Government is the Ministry of Industry, Business, and Financial Affairs . The ministry is responsible for digitalizing a range of policies that are essential to the business environment, including trade regulation, intellectual property rights, competition and consumer policy, as well as the financial sector and, last but not least, shipping.
