Mobile Signature, a project launched in September, allows Moldovan citizens to sign any document using a mobile phone, even from outside the country and can function as a virtual “key” that allows a user to access public services.

Moldova is among the first seven countries in the world to use mobile signature.

Mobile technology is used by governments to further increase communication with citizens, but also to make it more convenient for individuals and businesses to use some public services.

The Moldovan government has also previously won the international award “Best Cloud Project in Central & Eastern Europe” for the information platform “Cloud Computing – MCloud“.
