By the end of the 1950s, Romania was one of the only 8 countries who managed to create an electronic computer. As a communist country, the state supported the IT field as it was in a continuous competition with the other imperialist countries. The year of 1989 put the freshly democratised Romania in a situation where smugglers and fraudulent privatisations became normal and most of the IT specialists felt like there’s no future for them in this country, so they left to work in more developed countries. Despite this, few of those who stayed decided to open their own businesses and some of them are now being on the international market e.g. Bitdefender.
