"The experience of St. Petersburg is a success. That strategy is a "living" document, we live according to it. But, of course, time makes its own adjustments, now a new technological way of life is being formed, and the tasks of developing the digital economy set by President Vladimir Putin come to the fore. However, the priority is the augmentation of human capital. The Forum will help implement it in practice in all regions of Russia.
