Romania needs to implement a real digitization, as only 26% of Romania have basic digital competencies, according to the Communications Ministry.
In Romania, some 78% of children aged 7 to 18 browse the Internet, and 90% of them use at least one social network, said Manuela Catrina, state secretary with the Communications Ministry.
Romania fares worse than the rest of the EU for basic digital competencies: 50% of EU citizens have these competencies covered.
A recent study by Valoria shows 47% of companies in Romania are significantly influenced by digitization. However, in six out of ten companies, top managers lack sufficient expertise to evaluate and develop digital business models.
