The Potential and Prospects for Developing the Digital Economy in the Russian Regions

07 Jun , 17:00–18:15
The Russian Economy: Achieving National Development Goals
conference hall (Krasnodar Region stand)

Over the coming years, the Russian economy can be expected to grow through the further digitalization of industries and the emergence and acceptance of new networks and platforms for interaction between business, society and the state. This digital transformation will be tested by the scale of Russia’s territory, its diversity and differences in socioeconomic development in order to eventually benefit every resident of the country. The systematic and balanced development of the digital economy in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation must be ensured. Can a digital economy be built in a cost-effective manger in non-commodity sectors and regions that require subsidies? What types of federal support for regional digital development projects are envisioned by the Government of the Russian Federation? How can uniform digital transformation be ensured in regions with different potential? How can the successful international experience of regional digitalization be applied in Russia?
