MINSK, 18 April (BelTA) - The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) should intensify work on common digitalization processes, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Petrishenko said as he opened the fifth edition of the Eurasian Digital Forum on the sidelines of the TIBO 2023 international forum, BelTA has learned.
According to Igor Petrishenko, in 2017 the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council approved the main directions of the development of the EAEU digital agenda through 2025. In 2023 the EAEU member states launched the third stage of the digital agenda - the implementation of the planned projects and digital cooperation at the global, regional, national and sectoral levels. “With the high rates of technological development in the IT sector, the EAEU digital agenda needs to be updated. First of all, it concerns the EAEU integrated information system, which ensures the joint operation of state information resources and systems of the EAEU states,” the deputy prime minister said.
Once updated, the system should ensure full implementation of the EAEU digital agenda, cross-border interaction and provision of interstate services in electronic form, and increase accessibility of its information resources for citizens and businesses, he stressed.
According to Igor Petrishenko, the EEC together with the member states should intensify the work on the implementation of common processes. “Some 24 out of 78 common processes have been implemented. That is obviously not enough in view of the tasks and opportunities. We should move in this direction synchronously all together,” he said.
The 29th edition of the international information and communications technology forum TIBO 2023 will be running through 21 April. Showcasing their products and services are well-known manufacturers of telecommunications equipment, hardware and software, mobile and fixed-line operators, developers and suppliers of high-tech products, security systems, intelligent solutions and services, scientific and educational institutions.
