1. The institutional structure and coordinator in Romania – IMDD: Early last year we completed setting up the Institute of Management and Sustainable Development (IMDD) as the local coordinator of C7- e-Government for sustainable development subgroup. A team of professionals has been gathered up in order to develop the subgroup programs and projects, both locally and internationally.

4. Researching the status and the trends of e-Government for sustainable development: One crucial factor for the success of such activities is efficient cooperation of all relevant key players in e-Government and sustainable development fields, both locally and internationally. So we have initiated a cooperation project between public and private key players in order to determinate the needs and expectations regarding the implementation of intelligent applications in public administration sector and e-Services in terms of sustainable development.
5. About the survey Purpose: To evaluate the present perception upon the necessity and the recognition of the sustainable development To measure the level of the implementation and the usage of the electronic public services, the way it is perceived by the citizens, private sector and public administration To evaluate the expectations on interconnectivity and interoperability of electronic systems, national and international cooperation, governance transparency and acknowledgement of sustainable development principles

High- level roundtable "The role of e-Governance for sustainable development" Debate on the following topics: Analysis of surveys results Methods to increase transparency in public administration by using new technologies Ensuring security of electronic systems Education and lifelong e-learning solutions Innovative e-services
About the roundtable: The event brought together specialists from public, private, academic and non- governmental sectors. Among them, we mention here: Personal adviser of the Romanian Prime Minister - Mrs. Andreea Paul Vass Deputy in the Romanian Parliament, member of the Committee for IT&C - Mr. Varujan Pambuccian Director of The Romanian National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics - Mrs. Prof. PhD. Eng. Doina Banciu Former Minister of Finance - Mr. Ionut Popescu Marketing and Strategy Director at Ericsson - Mr. Razvan Pirvu President of ANISP - Mr. Gheorghe Serban Ph.D Associate Professor at the National Academy of Information Mihai Viteazul - Mr. Prof. Dumitru Zamfir President of the Institute for Political Research - Mr. Marius Vladu.
CONCLUSIONS: The results pointed to the correlation and dependence between eGovernment and sustainable development There is a strong need to interconnect isolated electronic systems, at both local, regional and international level, in order to deliver integrated e-services Key "resources" (such as databases) have to be shared, or at least, it has to be increased the level of access granted, in order to enable international cooperation on various issues Security is a major issue, able to either attract or limit the interest of users in e- services, since e-services use personal and private data and information Resistance to change instead of economic crisis proved to be the major barrier for e-services' development E-services are seen as a solution for cost cutting and increasing the quality of life
WSIS implementation mechanism: An effective set of tools Due to the time frame, it may be important to review and adapt the set of mechanisms in order to fit the actual conditions and trends Increased usage of web 2.0 mechanisms would be helpful The instruments have to address all kind of stakeholders; currently it may be a focus on decision makers while the other layers are less involved Since it is a long-term approach, related actions presenting and promoting the milestones, expectations and benefits, could be helpful Regional and sectorial events, in addition to global events could leverage the effectiveness in eGovernment and refocus on sustainable development, instead of focusing only on short and mid-term projects
NEXT STEPS: Efficient exchange of best practices in public administration systems – we already have created on a Best Practice exchange place A set of regional and sectorial analysis and events Promoting reduction of bureaucracy and vulnerability of the system Implementing specific e-services, as tools for sustainable development
