All the tourism oriented organizations experience the greater and greater impact of what are known today as the new information and communication technologies (NICT). In this context, we considered appropriate to make a study on the degree of use of the new information technologies in Romania and the CEE-EU countries, countries reunited under this title (CEE), after the proposal of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), to which we chose to add the EU ending, in order to clarify from the beginning that we refer to the member states of the European Union, from the Central and Eastern Europe. In order to ensure the comparability of the results, we used the data provided by EUROSTAT, through the European Commission reports on the NICT use at the level of business from the tourism industry from Romania and the other countries in the region. The analysis results show that Romania and Bulgaria are the countries with the biggest deficiencies regarding the implementation of the new information and communication technologies at the level of the tourist accommodation establishments and food services.
