Russia can become one of the digital leaders in the world with the help of the government programme «Digital economy», said the head of Sberbank German Gref.

In the summer of 2017, the government adopted the programme «Digital economy of the Russian Federation» for the period up to 2024, which includes five areas relating to regulatory, cyber security, education and training, formation of research competences and IT infrastructure.

«If you look at our place in the digital world, we are today in the digital evolution index around the middle of the group of followers. Of course, all are now seeking among the digital leaders. In my opinion, a program that has been created by the government with the participation of business, aimed at it to catch up with a group of digital leaders. In my opinion, we have a chance at it,» said Gref, speaking at the Moscow international forum «Open innovations».
