Advancements in IT and digitisation lead to higher standards of living, services, etc., with key focus areas including the mobile economy, the Internet of Things, the information economy and the intelligent ecosystems (smart cities, healthcare, transportation and education). To unlock the potential in each of these areas, the Government needs to put in place effective regulatory and legal frameworks, ensure security and engage an increasing number of citizens.
Following his address to the Federal Assembly at the end of 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Government and the Presidential Executive Office to develop a Digital Economy programme and have it approved by June 2017.
The Government Expert Council has also endorsed the programme roll-out to other areas such as manufacturing industry, energy, e-commerce, and SME.
