Alexander Stubb, former Prime Minister of Finland and now deputy chair of the European Investment Bank (EIB) describes Brexit as one of the greatest tragedies of modern times. Being part of NATO and a member of the UN Security Council made Britain an important part of the EU, and for the Nordic countries the UK was an ally in issues such as free trade.
Alexander Stubb is visiting Stockholm as part of his new role at the EIB and to sign contracts with two Swedish companies that have been granted loans: Clavister is to loan SEK 20 million for cyber security development and Nexus is borrowing SEK 29 million to develop identity and security solutions digitally.
He talks about how digital development, artificial intelligence and robotisation will affect everything from democracy and politics to future lifestyles. One problem he sees is that there are few joint standards on the digital market and he would like to see a digital inner market in the EU.
