CHONGQING (China) (Sputnik) — “Digital technologies are being integrated in every sphere and influence the development of various national industries, and we paid significant attention to this issue during our last meeting in [Russian city of] Volgograd and even yesterday during the meeting in a small-group format we also agreed to pay more attention to… digital technologies, telecommunication, everything that makes the economy more clear and predictable,” Rogozin said at the meeting of Russian-Chinese Intergovernmental Commission on Preparing Regular Meetings between Heads of Government.
The deputy prime minster added that apart from digital technologies, the sides had already intensified dialogue regarding the Arctic region, which implies the construction of transport infrastructure along the Northern Sea Route and development of tourism in the region.
