Digital transformation is important for the effective development of government and business
The digitalization of the economy is an inevitable stage of its evolution. The digital agenda on the margins of the G20 is relevant and appropriate, and we hope that this discussion will be useful for all participating countries — Mikhail Oseevskiy, President, Rostelecom.
There are five pillars of our digital economy: regulatory control; infrastructure; network security, i.e., cybersecurity; education, namely, training professionals for the digital economy; and forming partnerships to create end-to-end technology platforms. These five pillars are not business as I understand it, but a function of the government working in partnership with business; the goal here is not to make money — Arkady Dvorkovich, Chairman of Skolkovo Foundation.
Digital changes everything: costs, models, and management systems. There is a lot of work ahead. On behalf of the government, I would like to wish those participating in the panel session success and assure you that open dialogue, listening to your requests, responding to them, and changing under the influence of digital technologies remain the top priorities of the government — Maxim Akimov, Deputy Prime Minister, Government of the Russian Federation.
