MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev supports the idea of making a list of the most important information technologies.
“I support the idea to create a list of technologies, which we focus attention on,” the prime minister said at a meeting of the government on Monday.
“This is not an attempt to speed everything up in advance, this is our position and the desire to set the priorities correctly,” the prime minister explained.
The prime minister recalled that a similar step was taken by the modernization committee, when the work with supercomputers was singled out in a separate trend. “In general, this has brought its effect. And in this issue, I believe that this is right,” the prime minister said.
He also urged to create mechanisms to stimulate the IT industry. “If we do not set some priorities, if we proceed from the market to put everything in its proper place, then we will not make any breakthroughs. This is the sphere, where we have our capabilities,” Medvedev said with confidence.
The prime minister also added that he supports the attraction of the institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the work to develop the IT industry. “This potential should be used compulsorily,” the prime minister noted.
Speaking on the failures in this sphere, Medvedev linked them with an insufficient funding. “These opportunities appeared probably 3-5 years ago,” the prime minister recalled.
