President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Colleagues, friends, ladies and gentlemen,

I am happy to welcome here in Moscow not only football fans, but also you, the participants in the International Cybersecurity Congress.

Very important and relevant issues are being discussed during the forum. Today, the active introduction of digital technology outlines the progressive development of each country and maybe the entire world. Artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things have become the drivers of economic growth, while digital platforms and electronic document flow radically increase the transparency and efficiency of the activity of government agencies, businesses, social and educational institutions.

Let me say a few words about what we are doing in Russia in these areas.

To be continued.
