The Government of Russia is planning to create a system of electronic government in next two years.
In the first top priority, the government will create a information centre to insure interdepartmental information exchange and access to the data of government information systems. The system will provide a wide range of government services to Russian citizens in electronic form and, create a single information system to span all government agencies, ministries and departments. By 2010, all federal and regional government agencies will have to get their own call centres and websites, meeting single standards. The broad use of ICT will help to improve labor productivity, reduce energy costs and simplify many research and industrial procedures. The strategy for the development of Russia's electronic industry up to 2025 and the federal program 'The development of the electronic component base and radio-electronics' for the period from 2008 to 2015 were approved in 2007.
