By the end of the year, at least 10 end-to-end cross-sectoral projects will be launched in Russia aimed at developing the electronics industry and introducing domestic solutions in all sectors of the economy. This was announced by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, speaking at a meeting dedicated to the formation of demand for Russian radio-electronic products.
Digitalization is gaining momentum all over the world, artificial intelligence is being introduced. Russia sets itself the task of being in line with these changes.
According to Mikhail Mishustin, the scientific and technical potential of our country today allows us to establish a full cycle of production of electronic products – from materials and components to final devices and services based on them. All sectors of the Russian economy are interested in the implementation of domestic solutions – from energy and housing and communal services to construction, transport and communication services. It is important to competently build a chain between developers and consumers, which would make it possible to link market needs, the capabilities of manufacturers and integrator organizations, as well as create the right tools for generating demand for radio electronic products. Such a system is already being tested in Russia.
“At the level of the Government Commission on Digital Development, this year, a model has been launched for the implementation of end-to-end cross-industry projects aimed at developing the production of radio-electronic products in a full-cycle format. For each such project, there will be an anchor consumer with its own mass demand, “- said Mikhail Mishustin.
The Prime Minister specified that to date, five projects have already been identified, where state-owned companies are the customers. These include Rostelecom (backbone equipment for communication networks), as well as VTB and Rosatom (hardware, software and computing systems for corporate information platforms).
“We will scale this approach, since it allows us to create a stable demand for the products of our microelectronic industries,” emphasized Mikhail Mishustin.
The meeting was attended by Deputy Prime Ministers Yuri Borisov and Dmitry Chernyshenko, Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media Maksut Shadayev, representatives of major companies, including Rosatom, Rostec, Russian Railways, AFK Sistema, Sberbank, VTB Bank , Rosneft, Gazprom Neft, Rosseti, Yandex, Mail.ru Group, MTS, Megafon.
