Introduction—Surveying the Cyberterrain of Developing Country Head of State Web Sites
I ask you to come with me, under the motto, ‘Close to the people, together with them.’ Let’s turn a page and let’s write a new one in our history! Let’s do our best, so that over the years to come we should be entitled to be proud of our determination and hard work at a moment when many people lost their hope!
—Ion Iliescu, the President of Romania,
Greeting from the Official Romanian Presidential Web site
The President of Romania is one of only nine presidents in developing countries in Europe who maintain an official Web site in English. He is part of a worldwide trend of presidents using the Web for official functions.
