Olga Skorobogatova, First Deputy Governor of the Bank of Russia, noted: «In the era of digitalization and introduction of technology in all spheres of life, it is not enough to simply follow the trends; it is important to be able to look ahead and set the direction for development. It is most important in the financial sector that covers the needs of all industries. Finopolis, which brings together leading representatives of the financial and IT sectors, gives a chance to look at the situation from different angles and develop the plan of action for the near future. For instance, we discussed the possibility of introducing remote identification in the banking sector at one of the first Forums, and today it is already starting to work. I am confident that Finopolis 2018 will produce new ideas that will also be in demand by the market and our citizens.»
