There are a number of projects under which we already cooperate. We are fully involved in the European cooperation in the field of both transport and information technologies, and we participate in that cooperation at the level of ministerial meetings and at the level of meetings of working groups. This cooperation covers a wide range of spheres, including the development of electronic services, which include electronic signature, electronic commerce and various others.
