MOSCOW, December 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The development of the Internet in Russia may create up to 5 million new jobs, Deputy Communications Minister Alexei Volin told a conference entitled IT and Runet 2013: Results of the Year on Tuesday.
“Within the upcoming several years the Internet will create over 1 million jobs directly in the Internet economy. There will be more jobs in Internet-dependent economies, therefore when we say the president set the task of creating 25 million new jobs, I think, of them 3 to 5 million are exactly ours.”
The deputy minister cited the infrastructure of Russian Post as an example of the Internet-dependent economy. The reserves for developing the postal operator can be tapped through online trade, he said.
Volin said labor productivity in Internet-dependent economies was three time higher than that all over the country. It corresponds to the European and U.S. levels.
