A new version of amendments to the law on information to be submitted to the Government by the end of October

The Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation will bring together in a single draft law a package of amendments to the Federal Law "On Information, Information Technologies, and Information Protection" from the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation and provisions on the National Data Management System from market participants. This was reported to ComNews by Aleksandr Malakhov, Head of the Department for Methodological Support of Data Processing at the Analytical Center.

"The amendments developed by the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation to Federal Law No. 149 "On Information, Information Technologies, and Information Protection" ideologically intersect with the draft federal law on the National Data Management System. Initially, the draft law of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation did not include all possible issues of data regulation, so it was necessary to supplement the draft law with provisions from the draft federal law on the National Data Management System. It was decided that the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation would bring together proposals for amendments to Federal Law No. 149-FZ, which will take into account the amendments of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation and the provisions on the National Data Management System," explained Malakhov.

    The Kommersant writes that Russia's foreign trade surplus continues to shrink at an accelerating pace.

The reason for the decline was the decrease in the value of energy exports due to falling market demand and an increase in the import of services that has been occurring at the same time as exports of services have been falling, the regulator explains.
