"We will set up a public agency for cloud and digital services which, under a public-private partnership, will take care of the project, of building the cloud infrastructure for providing such services," said Jianu. "If we succeed, then the government, the public administration, will get the speed to evolve with the economy, and then all this will be reflected in the citizens′ pockets."

He added that Romania should transform itself from an emerging country in terms of digital economy into a transition country.

"We must be able to capitalise and turn from an emerging country in terms of digital economy into a transition country, so that we may reach maturity as soon as possible," added Jianu. "I believe that in a longer term, Romania has a lot of potential as far as added value in the digital economy is concerned. Romanians are highly creative; it is something in their cultural DNA. Romanians have always very well understood how systems operate and how to take a side step. We can capitalise on that because what is happening now is us building a cyberspace. Currently, we need cyberspace builders; we cannot build without thinking from the onset about system security."
