In order for the digital transformation to fulfil its goal politics should adapt to the new expectations of the people in the new global conditions. New politicians should offer quick and creative solutions and leaders running the megalopolises can serve as example. This was stated by Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov in his address at the presidential session ‘Dilemma of our century: technology vis-a-vis politics’ at the 21st Eurasian Economic Forum in Istanbul. As he underlined, the digitisation cannot provide answers to all challenges. “Experiences from managing Istanbul, New York or Hong Kong in the 21st and 22nd centuries are becoming more important for the future of managing the globalised diversity than the experiences with the national state of the 19th and 20th century,” Ivanov said.
