At the Diia Reels event as part of the World Economic Forum, the Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov together with the Vice Chancellor for Digital Development of Estonia Luukas Kristjan Ilves presented the Estonian version of the Diia application. It was named mRiik.
“During cooperation with Estonian colleagues, the Diia team shared the application code and approaches to UX / UI design. With a unified national mobile platform, Estonia will be able to save on development costs in the future,” the Ministry of Digital Transformation said.
This is the first case of such cooperation for Ukraine. mRiik has a very similar design to Diia and repeats the functionality. Testers will test digital versions of ID cards, passports and car documents, as well as access to various government services.
“The case with the Estonian application is important because it is the first. Because Estonia. Because friends. Because digitalization is the future,” says Mykhailo Fedorov in his message.
Along with this, Fedorov showed a short video presentation of mRiik. Ukrainians easily recognize Diia in it. Also USAID Administrator Samantha Power spoke about interest in the further export of Diia to other countries on the forum.
