The Croatian government on Thursday gave consent to the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Croatia and the Amazon Web Services (AWS).
As the lead cloud computing platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides servers, storage, networking, remote computing, email, mobile development, and security.
Bernard Gršić, the state secretary of the Central State Office for Digital Society Development, told the government that the AWS offered more than 200 full services.
AWS has expressed its wish to cooperate with the Croatian government in the field of digital transformation and also to ink the memorandum of understanding, a document which it has already signed with other EU member-states, Gršić said.
The purpose of the memorandum is to establish strategic cooperation in the digital transformation of the public administration, digitization, digital literacy, and innovations.
Recently, Amazon has formally announced the opening of an office with 15 specialists in cloud infrastructure maintenance and management in Croatia.
Last October, Amazon and the Croatian Post (HP) signed an agreement on the delivery of parcels and logistics support in Croatia.
