According to Konstantin Shulgan, good initial conditions for the successful digital transformation and for ensuring the competitive ability of the economy have been enabled in Belarus.

Along with stands of leading Belarusian and foreign telecommunication and IT companies, and innovative startups the expo features collective stands of industries as well as a national exposition of Azerbaijan.
“The main purpose of the forum is to assist with the effective digital transformation of the economy and the state administration system. TIBO vividly demonstrates how information technologies can be effectively used in various spheres of activity,” Konstantin Shulgan noted.
The communications and informatization minister went on saying that a new approach to organizing the event had been chosen. The expo is built around an exposition of the Communications and Informatization Ministry, the Operations and Analysis Center, and other central government agencies. Primarily finished digital solutions have been put on display. They have been created on the basis of modern technological trends and have been assimilated in various areas: the production sector, social sphere organizations, healthcare, education, and other ones.
Apart from traditional sections the expo has a new one dedicated to the ecosystem of innovations where innovative infrastructure entities and the projects they have helped implement are represented. The number includes technological clusters, business incubators, technology transfer centers, and venture capital funds.
