In the field of digitalization of the economy, it is necessary to act more actively – Putin
Russian President Vladimir Putin called for intensifying the digitalization of the national economy. He noted that this is a necessary measure to increase the global competitiveness of our country.
“Then we will expand the horizon of our development, solve the problems associated with increasing labor productivity and the growth of the economy as a whole, create a new structure of our economy. And if we sit in one place exactly, we will not do anything, then there will be a swamp around us, we will never get rid of excessive administrative barriers in either construction or other industries”, – Vladimir Putin said at a last meeting of the Presidium of the National Projects Council.
The head of state noted that thanks to the use of modern digital services during the coronavirus pandemic, the state was able to quickly respond and build an effective system to support business and citizens. He also called for greater use of the benefits of new technological solutions.
“Here we must also be among the world leaders. The practice of recent months has shown that this is absolutely possible for us. We are generally ready for this. You just need to target this area of our work, launch powerful digital development in all areas of life: in the education system, when receiving medical care, public services, which is especially important – in the field of housing and communal services and urban economy. And of course, in promoting new business ideas for the development of their business”, – Vladimir Putin added.
