MOSCOW, 24 May (BelTA) – The digital agenda of the Eurasian Economic Union needs to be substantially updated. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement in his speech during the 2nd Eurasian Economic Forum in Moscow, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “The union's digital agenda needs to be substantially updated. First of all, it applies to the integrated information system of the Eurasian Economic Union. It enables collaborative work of state information resources and systems of states of our union. We should be the ones to create it and control it without outsourcing it to Americans or Western Europeans like we did before. We have well-trained personnel and the physical infrastructure.”
In his words, it is necessary to start developing a Eurasian agenda in the area of information security.
Aleksandr Lukashenko also remarked that the Eurasian Economic Union Treaty does not regulate matters of information policy for now and this shortcoming needs to be addressed.
