Medvedev outlines winning approach toward regulation of digitization

ALMATY. Feb 2 (Interfax) - Regulation processes ought to become more transparent, easier and more universal amid the development of digitization processes worldwide, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

"Those who will offer a reliable, easy and transparent mechanism of regulation will win this race. Digital processes indeed require comprehensive and cross-border regulation, which should be based on a soft platform rather than a conventional one because excessive conservative regulation can dent our competitiveness. We have seen this for ourselves," Medvedev said at the "Digital Agenda in the Era of Globalization" forum in the Kazakh city of Almaty.

"We will have to work out such a range of legal tools that will make it possible to process and analyze arrays of de-identified data within all of our five states," he said.
