The number of people in Moldova requesting and being issued with electronic signatures by the Centre for Information Technology in Finance (CTIF) rose by 6.5% in the first quarter of 2020 to reach almost 29,000 individuals and legal entities with electronic signatures by 31 March.
The CTIF says the rise is due to the expansion in the range available electronic public services and people’s increased confidence in the efficiency of these services. Businesses can use electronic signatures to sign contracts and documents remotely, saving time and money, and citizens can sign official documents, requests or statements without presenting themselves at the offices of public institutions.
From April 8, the CTIF has extended the validity period of electronic signatures issued up to two years.
