Rostec has become a strategic partner of the the international forum "Information Technology of Industrial Russia 2017" (CIPR 2017). During the event, a workshop, a reading of digital economy roadmap, and over 25 panel and roundtable discussions on the electronics industry development are scheduled to be held. Within the framework of CIPR, Rostec State Corporation is looking to sign more than 10 contracts with major Russian and foreign companies.
According to the Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly delivered by Vladimir Putin in December 2016, the "Information Technology of Industrial Russia 2017" conference focuses on combining the efforts of business and government to work out a unified stance on the development of digital economy.
