In order to implement agenda on Russian digital economy will be created special commission

Russian prime-minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed two governmental decrees. One decree establishes commission on digital economy. Under this decree the commission has the right to make decision by absent voting. The decision can be made by the majority of the participated votes. More than half of commission members, who have the vote, must attend the voting; otherwise the decision will be unenforceable.

The second governmental decree lists the members of this commission. The main purpose of this commission is to manage implementation of state agenda on Russian digital economy. According to Medvedev, in order to involve Russian business in “digital” (economy) it is necessary to consider what kind of financial support it needs, what taxation regime is better to apply and what obstacles of administrative character must be eliminated.
