Government approves digital literacy strategy

The government is set to earmark nearly 4 billion crowns in the next five years to support digital literacy, according to a strategy for digital literacy approved by the government on Thursday. Over three fifths of the sum will be covered by European funds while the rest will be paid by the state. The financing will be used for courses and training as well as for establishing digital centres for the public. The strategy, put forward by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, also aims to provide better access to the Internet for people from low income groups.
