Alexandru Petrescu added : "PNL had another attempt, at the time when there was the Democratic Convention, and even managed to discard the ministry. It was a different reality from that of Europe in 2019. Today, the weight of projects and the digital agenda is extremely important in the framework of the ministry. Let us not forget that we had a European digital economy portfolio, we have to make up for alignment with the European digital standards, which is why discarding the ministry would be an extremely uninspired decision, with a series of disastrous consequences to the digitisation of Romania," External link

Alexandru Petrescu said : "We have 20 countries participating in the European Cyber Security Championship in Bucharest, plus another two countries in the position of observers. More than 350 visitors from these countries are in Bucharest for the contest. This sixth edition of the event is very important for Romania, after we were very close to winning it in 2016 and 2017, when we placed second in the end. (...) We are talking about a competition dedicated to young people aged 16 to 25, organized at EU level; Romania continues to make efforts to be on the map of European cybernetics. Let us not forget that at the level of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which was held by Romania in the first six months of this year, we had some important cyber security projects; we’ve made progress with them, and even completed some," External link

Alexandru Petrescu said : "As planned since the end of last year, the beginning of the current year, the regulator, meaning the authority that has the responsibility for the tender for the 5G frequency allocation [e.n. - the National Authority for Administration and Regulation of Communications - ANCOM] has already kicked off the process of public consultation right on the institution’s website. The course is in progress according to the plan that we have undertaken and we expect that by the end of this year, this tender will be completed. By 2020, we will surely start the implementation of 5G technology in Romania and so we can place ourselves at the forefront of the first European countries that implement this technology. The tender itself has already been carried out or is underway in a number of countries such as Germany, Italy, Austria, Hungary. It is therefore important to maintain this path so that we remain among the first countries that will adopt 5G technology - a turning point. 5G will be the basis for the adoption of new technologies and we are talking about the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and we want Romania to remain at the forefront of the leading countries that will have at their disposal a new technology," External link

Alexandru Petrescu mentioned : "The first project ’IT system for scholastic management’ - known as the electronic catalogue, worth 48.47 million euro, 100 pct European funds, with an implementation length of 3 years, will create an online platform that can be used in distinct ways, both by the management of schools, by teachers, by pupils, but also parents, creating, at the same time, accountability on all the parties involved through the access to all information regarding evaluation and truancy. The second project - ’Digital platform with open educational resources, virtual library’ -, known as the virtual library, worth 49.46 million euro, of which 40.75 million euro European funds, with an implementation length of 2 years, will represent a digital platform with open educational resources, mainly for the gymnasium cycle of education. Generally, it means that manuals will be electronic and freely available to pupils together with other electronic educational resources. For an efficient use of this instrument in the classroom, the project implies, also, the fitting of 5,400 gymnasiums with a multimedia kit," External link

Today we gathered for the signing of three financing contracts that will significantly contribute to the improvement of the interaction between the state and the citizen. Through the implementation of the three projects, worth a combined 197.7 million lei, of which 168 million, or about 85 percent, in European funding, we will digitalize a considerable number of life events centered around the citizens' identity and activity - obtaining their ID and passport - the electronic passport included, for Romanians abroad, of the diplomatic and service passport, driving license.

Alexandru Petrescu said ( about Digital Agenda ) : "I do not think there was a better place than the Polytechnic University of Bucharest to have such a five-day event with an important academic participation, and also with the participation of the European institutions, the business sector from over 17 countries. This is an event included in the portfolio of events under the aegis of the Romanian presidency of the Council of the European Union. Cybersecurity is at the heart of the European Union's concerns with the Digital Agenda, as reflected by Romania during this period not only in this event, where we want to raise awareness, but also in the concern to have more citizens, more SMEs understand the importance of cybersecurity mitigation measures. In the end, the EU member states are strong against cybersecurity threats, but also vulnerable at the same time. So, we must equally prioritise everything regarding cybersecurity measures, because we live in a world where these incidents are on an upward trend, no doubt about it. There are examples of good administrative practice in other countries, and I mean Israel, which was and is a source of inspiration for assembling an administrative configuration that would serve today's risks in the area of cybersecurity," External link

This number is available from all networks where cyber security incidents can be reported by individuals, legal entities and public institutions by providing primary assistance and counseling for diagnosis and remediation through the Call Center.
