CIS ranked second in the world in access to information technologies – the expert

Lagging behind the Europe.

Almost everyone uses electronic state services, mobile banking services, e-commerce. No major organization can do without information solutions. Editor-in-chief of CNews Maksim Kazak noted this during the forum "Digital Agenda in the Era of Globalization" in Almaty, BNews.kz correspondent reports.

"Over the past 20 years, the creation of these systems has moved to digitization, we have switched the paper documents into electronic form and learned how to work with them. The countries are successfully coping with this task. The CIS ranks second in the world in access to and use of information technologies, lagging behind the Europe," said Kazak.

Now, the EAEU states are at the stage, when separate information systems begin to be connected into a digital platform.

"This is a very important process, from the technological point of view, it is clear to specialists what to do and how to do it. Our countries, like all others, face the challenges. It is that the technologies that have been used for a long time are undergoing a cardinal transformation, in particular, crypto-currencies tested the strength of traditional money, which states imitated for thousands of years. Robototechnics drastically reduced the use of human labor in industry. The poor countries that sold their cheap labor to the rich begin to lose a million jobs that return back to rich countries, but to robots, not to people," the forum moderator said.

Similar examples are associated with blockchain, artificial intelligence and many other technologies. In his words, all this together has become a real challenge for the governments of the countries. However, such changes give the population new opportunities.
