MOSCOW, September 29 (Itar-Tass) — Cooperation between Russia's regions and the European Union (EU) in promoting the establishment of an electronic government of Russia has entered the finishing straight.
The implementation of a project on the theme of "The State for Citizens", encompassing the territory stretching from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean, has continued for two years. The EU allocated two million euros for carrying out the project which is to be introduced to the public at-large and the Russian establishment at the EU representative office here on Thursday.
European diplomats say the project is intended to promote not only a more active interaction between Russian regions but also stable contacts with partners in EU countries. Summing up the preliminary results of the work done, an EU Office staff member said that about 3,000 public employees from 53 regions of Russian had undergone training. In all, 25,000 people took part in the development of new electronic services.
This is not the first project being implemented by the EU in partnership with the Russian Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media. In the period from 2004 to 2009, similar programmes were alternately introduced in Arkhangelsk, Kaliningrad, Novgorod, Petrozavodsk, and St Petersburg.
This time the project has covered the entire territory of Russia, European diplomats emphasize.
