Estonia to help Bulgaria implement e-government

Sep 13, 2013
By Rayyan Sabet-Parry

TALLINN - Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev is visiting Estonia this week in an effort to build stronger relations between the two countries. Plevneliev’s schedule includes visiting some of Estonia’s key venues, including the e-governance academy and the  NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence.

Talks included comments on how to introduce e-government systems in Bulgaria, following its success in Estonia.

Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves said: “Estonia and Bulgaria, two EU border countries, have been similarly thinking and acting allies on important European issues. During the last financial crisis we both demonstrated responsibility, which could serve as a role model for many.”

Pleneliev added, “If Bulgaria manages to secure EU funding for the introduction of e-government in Bulgaria in the period 2014-2020, we will be able to accomplish miracles in a year and a half in cooperation with our Estonian friends. We need a brave decision – if we introduce e-government in two years, Bulgaria will be an entirely different country.”

The Balkan countries’ integration with the EU was also in focus during talks as well as the Eastern Partnership, ahead of its November summit in Vilnius.

Bulgaria and Estonia will be co-preside over the EU presidency in 2018.
