The event was attended by first deputy chairman of the Russian government Igor Shuvalov, Minister of Communications and Mass Media Nikolay Nikiforov, first deputy head of staff of the Government Maxim Akimov, heads of federal executive bodies, line ministries and state corporations, senators, deputies, leading experts in the field of digital technology.
The participants of the hearings discussed the program ”Digital economy of the Russian Federation“, ensuring electronic interaction between the business and the state, improving the availability of financial services based on digital technologies, cybersecurity and antimonopoly regulation in digital economy.
As German Klimenko noted in his speech, now there is a real chance to modernize the Russian economy, using the best practices of leading domestic Internet companies, such as Yandex, Rambler, Mail.Ru and other. The development of digital economy depends primarily on the adopted draft laws. The State Duma should form its position on key issues affecting the Internet industry, preventing the adoption of draft laws that impair the business conditions for Russian Internet companies.
Concluding the discussion, the Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin underlined that the legal regulation in this sector means the creation of necessary conditions for its further development. ”It is certainly important for us to legislatively regulate the issues related to the digital economy in such a way that there were opportunities for the growth and development in the country,“ he said.
“And from then on,“ the speaker said to representatives of the IT industry,“ they should be used by you as far as possible. And the state should stimulate this development.“
