Gaidar Forum Panel Discussion "Digital Society: State, Economy, Ethics

17 january 2018 at 10 a.m. | Moscow, the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration

Digital technologies long ago ceased to be just technologies, becoming instead a foundation for a deep transformation of all aspects of the society: the economic system, the state policy, social relations and interpersonal communications. The global community is coming to grips with this new reality, trying to understand its manifestations and the challenges it presents, adapting its public institutions and trying to anticipate what's going to come next, not just tomorrow but the day after tomorrow. What is the future digitization going to be like, what are the trends that we cannot see yet but which are going to become dominant in the near future? And in this context, how should we evolve the national digitization strategy outlined in the Digital Economy of the Russian Federation program? 

The discussion will be moderated by Maxim Akimov, First Deputy Head of the Administration of the Russian Government
