Lukashenko suggests creating IT ecosystem of SCO

QINGDAO, 10 June (BelTA) – Belarus’ President Alexander Lukashenko has suggested developing an IT ecosystem in the SCO. The Belarusian leader made this statement at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit in Qingdao on 10 June, BelTA has learnt.

The president noted that today’s technological development pace offers new opportunities, but also poses challenges and threats. No state can afford closing or banning something in this field.

“I suggest considering the development of a common electronic platform, let us say, SCO’s IT ecosystem that will incorporate the possibilities of electronic mass media, social networks, e-trade and many more,” the head of state said.

In his words, this will help boost cooperation and increase competitiveness of national economies against the backdrop of globalization. “This will also help us maintain security in our countries,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
