The Romanians are among the last in the European Union when it comes to using internet banking services, according to a 2017 report by EU’s statistical office Eurostat.
Only about 1 in 10 Romanians were using internet banking within the last three months before the survey, local Ziarul Financiar reported. Only Bulgaria reported a lower share than Romania while Finland ranked first.
However, Romania ranks much higher when it comes to using social networks, with more than 8 in 10 Romanians using social networks within the last three months before the survey. This placed Romania on fifth in the EU, while its neighbor Bulgaria ranked fourth.
