Medvedev called upon the EAEU countries to develop a common approach to crypto-currencies

Ideally, it is necessary to prepare international conventions on crypto-assets, therefore, it is necessary to synchronize efforts in this area of the EAEU member states.

Concerning the crypto-assets, the countries of the EAEU should not become isolated within the framework of the national model. This issue needs to be treated more closely, because the economies of states are closely related. It will not be possible to implement these principles within one country unless the approaches are brought together at the union level. This opinion was expressed by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at the "Digital Agenda in Globalization" forum in Almaty, BNews.kz correspondent reports.

In his opinion, ideally, international conventions on crypto-assets should be prepared, so it is necessary to synchronize efforts in this area of ​​the EAEU countries.

"I want to thank our Kazakhstani friends for a useful forum and express gratitude to the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, for the initiative of holding it. It is not necessary to think that we, even developed countries, will be able to advance the digital agenda for a limited time. There are digital inequalities: Yes, figures have become an integral part of our economies, our countries have programs, they all implement it, but digital inequality is not overcome, and that is the key thing. That is why we need to move fast. We need to unite our markets to develop their own infrastructure,” said Dmitry Medvedev.

He noted the need as the development of digital services to address the issues of countering hacker attacks. Thus, the program "Digital Economy Program" is implemented in five main directions: regulation, infrastructure, technological resources, security, personnel and education.

"Four of them have already approved action plans. Such a program is a "living organism", so it will develop .We will monitor global trends, engage in industry areas: smart city, healthcare, education, logistics, energy. technologies as blockchain have a colossal future. Nobody of us does not know whether crypto-currencies will survive," the speaker said.

According to him, it is impossible to close within the framework of the national model of the crypto currency, it is necessary to bring together approaches to it within the framework of the EAEU. He believes that without the international conventions this sphere of the economy will look not quite understandable and lawful.

"Regarding crypto-assets we should not lock ourselves within the framework of the national model in any case, but colleagues here said that it would be possible to pay with crypto-currencies. Let's take a closer look at it, because our economies are too tightly and closely connected. It is impossible to introduce these principles within one country, we need to bring our approaches closer to the level of the union," the Russian Prime Minister said.

In his opinion, ideally, international conventions on crypto-assets should be prepared, so it is necessary to synchronize efforts of ​​the EAEU countries in this area.

Medvedev also called upon the heads of the EAEU to create a single space of electronic trust and develop data exchange.

"This is a single space of electronic trust, it includes identification, authorization, digital archive services, and eventually we will be able to issue certificates to citizens of one country in the territory of another country in a digital format. It is the direction where the technologies of blockchain can be applied, that is the technology of mutual trust,” the guest said.

Another element of the digital platform for the EAEU countries was the creation of a machine-readable data exchange system. That is, a platform that includes the services of normative-reference information.

"We need to create a geo-information system of services that will simplify the control over the transportation and traceability of goods. This tool will create the outline of our interaction, but, of course, we will have to agree on standards, on linking national solutions. We are ready to provide our competence to all, to all our friends and partners on a practically non-reimbursable basis," the head of the government said.

We note that in Almaty, on the initiative of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the forum "Digital Agenda in Globalization" is held. Prime Ministers of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Uzbekistan, official delegations of Azerbaijan and Tajikistan, as well as representatives of a number of large international IT-companies entered the round table. The main objective of the forum is to work out joint measures that will accelerate the development of their own digital economies, increasing their competitiveness, and also on the basis of country advantages and regional integration transformation, to work out ways for the subsequent receipt of dividends.
