Belarusian communications ministry to get new name, regulate digitization

MINSK, 14 October (BelTA) – The Belarusian Communications and Informatization Ministry will be entrusted with the state regulation of the sphere of digitization. The decision was made after Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko received a report on individual aspects of the country’s development in the digital sphere on 14 October, BelTA learned from First Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Aleksandr Turchin.

The need to set up a government agency to steer the country’s digital development had been discussed at the level of the head of state before. In particular, representatives of the IT industry suggested setting up a digital economy ministry in Belarus when the head of state visited the Hi-Tech Park in April 2019. The idea was thoroughly analyzed upon instructions of Aleksandr Lukashenko.

Aleksandr Turchin said: “It has been decided that the Communications and Informatization Ministry will take care of that. Its functions will be revised and the name of the ministry will be changed.” The government will forward the relevant draft decisions to the head of state soon.

The government and the minister have been instructed to take the work of the Communications and Informatization Ministry to new heights so that the ministry would maintain tight cooperation with representatives of the IT sector in matters of digital technologies.
