The Flemish Government and a host of European local government partner organisations worked together by identifying the top things that national and EU decision makers can do to better support local eGovernment. The ‘Malmo Vision’ was still hardly translated down to the on-the-ground, local level. The Citadel Statement addressed this short-coming by better understanding why local communities are finding it challenging to implement eGovernment in an innovative, cost-effective and efficient manner. In the short period the Statement got a strong support from the main organizations of municipalities. A number of concrete projects were launched in the spirit of the Statement. And we can also notice a stronger commitment from the EU itself to support Local Egovernment. But there’s still a lot to do.
