In Europe, the Digital Single Market was conceived as an absolute priority and several strategies have been adopted to implement it. The digital transition is a priority in Europe and also naturally in Portugal, and it should also be a priority for Local Governments. This is the theme of the text: to justify the development of a single digital transition plan for Local Government in Portugal, based on e.governance, open connectivity and free movement of data, respecting ethics, law and cybersecurity. In this context, it is important to configure the Smart City Portuguese Charta, which should recognise the National Digital Transition Plan, the Strategy for Innovation and Modernisation of the State and Public Administration 2020-2023, the National Urban Development Policy, EU Urban Agenda (Amsterdam Pact) and New Urban Agenda of the United Nations. It can only be stated that the Charter should support the implementation of the national and European Sustainability Strategies and the achievement of the Sustainability Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030 (Sustainable Development Goals).
