“The benefits of this type of Government (eGovernment) apply to all Romanian socio-economic players: companies are now able to easily pay their bills, state authorities can control the procurement better and apply the process faster and more transparently. In this context, I recommend and raise a flag to state owned companies to use the electronic tenders system for all public tenders they are deploying.“ stated His Excellency, Mr. Traian Basescu, President of Romania during the opening session of the eGovernment Forum, special guest at the event by Media Consulta International and ComputerLand.
