Romania looks up to Estonia for the level of digitalization achieved by the Baltic country. This is the conclusion drawn from the official declaration of the Romanian president during his official visit to Estonia.

Estonia is way ahead of us in terms of e-government systems, digital services for the citizens and the security of the digital networks,, and we have so much to learn from them. I am optimistic regarding a cooperation in this field.Romanian President Klaus Iohannis in Tallinn
