President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Colleagues, friends, ladies and gentlemen,
I am happy to welcome here in Moscow not only football fans, but also you, the participants in the International Cybersecurity Congress.
Very important and relevant issues are being discussed during the forum. Today, the active introduction of digital technology outlines the progressive development of each country and maybe the entire world. Artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things have become the drivers of economic growth, while digital platforms and electronic document flow radically increase the transparency and efficiency of the activity of government agencies, businesses, social and educational institutions.
Let me say a few words about what we are doing in Russia in these areas.
To be continued.
Technology has long been the engine driving capital markets efficiency—both for investors in the markets, and for the capital markets infrastructure providers (CMIPs) that operate the exchanges and other trading venues, central counterparties, securities depositories, index providers, and data and analytics companies. More lately, fintechs are bringing new technologies to market even faster and with a greater impact.
