MOSCOW, December 17 (Itar-Tass) - Internet technologies will be most required in such spheres as education and health care, Deputy Communications Minister Alexei Volin told a conference entitled IT and Runet 2013: Results of the Year on Tuesday.
“It seems to me that education and health care will have a very great potential in this regard,” he said. “These areas are likely to attract people’s attention in many respects.”
Volin said the emergence of so-called “Internet- dependent economies”, which were not directly connected with work in the Internet, was one of the most important events of the outgoing year.
According to the Communications Ministry’s estimates, within the upcoming several years, the Internet will create over one million jobs directly in the Internet economy and three to five million new jobs in Internet-dependent economies.
“We should specify now where exactly in the Internet it will be possible to make money in the next 3-5 years,” Volin said. “It is quite clear that the structure of earnings in the Internet is going to change as well.”
The deputy minister noted that labor productivity in Internet-dependent economies was three times higher than that all over the country. It corresponds to the European and U.S. levels.
