Earlier, a Moldovan delegation of ICT public procurement experts visited Estonia. Thus, the constant exchanges and openness to learn the Estonian best practices in digital transformation and modernization of services shows a strong commitment to the development and continuous improvement of the administrative infrastructure and processes. This two-way dialogue allows both countries to identify innovative solutions and share know-how on digital technologies, e-governance and efficiency of public services.
In recent years, Moldova has received valuable insights and lessons learned from Estonia's journey of adopting and implementing advanced technologies in administration. Estonia, in turn, has the opportunity to better understand the peculiarities of Moldova and the challenges it faces, thus contributing to strengthening the partnership and solidarity for public sector modernization.
These continuous exchanges between the two countries speed up digitalization and strengthens cooperation to achieve the regional and international standards in public administration.
