MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - The IT industry should grow threefold quicker than the GDP rate. This target figure was set at a meeting of the Russian government by Minister of Telecommunications Nikolai Nikiforov, who presented the roadmap project for the development of information technologies for 2013-2018.
“The fulfilment of the measures of the roadmap will permit to achieve several important figures. This is a really high rate of the development of the industry. We set a target figure that the IT industry should grow threefold quicker than the GDP rate in the country,” the minister explained.
In his words, the production volume for this period of time should increase from 250 to 450 billion roubles, the exports should double to nine billion dollars annually, the venture financing volume should reach 40 billion roubles.
“We believe that the IT professions should be among the most popular professions in the country with due account of contribution that they give to the industry in general,” Nikiforov said in conclusion.
