With the fourth industrial revolution here to stay, information and communication technologies are turning from an ordinary business segment into a priority national development strategy. Russia has adopted the Scientific and Technological Development Strategy and launched the National Technology Initiative (NTI), which are designed to create conditions for Russia’s technology leadership by 2035. Demand for Russian IT developers and software is growing internationally. However, Russia is still far behind in terms of regulatory environment.
Digital technology is rapidly spreading around the globe, sparking expectations of faster economic growth, more jobs and better government services, which do not always hold true.
Government-led initiatives should help Russia to close the gap with foreign competitors.
In February 2017, the Government approved a roadmap to develop the NTI – Advanced Industrial Technologies (TechNet). The development must focus on digital design and simulation, new materials, additive technologies, artificial intelligence, Big Data, industrial internet and robototronics.
IT is one of Russia’s fastest-growing sectors.
Products developed in Russia are competitive globally.
