Chubais argued with Gref on the methods of struggle against corruption
Digitalization cannot be a panacea for all ills, he insists.
To fight corruption in Russia by means of one only of digitalization, as proposed by the President and the Chairman of the Board of Sberbank German Gref, will not succeed, said the Chairman of the Board UK “Rosnano” Anatoly Chubays in interview to TV channel “Russia-1”. According to Chubais, the scope of the problem wider and the introduction of technologies into all spheres of life can not solve it.
Wednesday, January 16, at the Gaidar forum, Gref called digitalization the only way to fight corruption in Russia. He said that corruption will disappear as a phenomenon, if the country will be a transparent process, “put in number”. Gref stressed that to solve this problem you need to give the market access to public information and to the decisions of any official. Decisions of officials shall be analyzed by the expert community and the results of the evaluation is to give the public access, he said.
According to the head of Sberbank, another barrier for economic development of Russia, expert advice. With such structures of the Ministry, he said, will continue to struggle to get money and build a closed system in which “nobody will be allowed”.News fora Blacklist of corrupt officials: loss of confidence fired 662 people
Their need they will justify state security, state interests and the capacity of the state to conduct its independent policy, said Gref. To overcome such barriers, according to the head of Sberbank, the country’s leadership is important to support those who in Russia is responsible for digitization, in particular, Deputy Prime Minister Maxim Akimov.
Chubais agreed with Gref that technology can help to reduce the level of corruption. “Really, when people come into a Multifunctional center providing state and municipal services and without bypass 15 ministries and officials hand over documents, which are then automatically stored in the database of these ministries is definitely reduce corruption,” — he brought an example.
But, unfortunately, I didn’t end up with him (Gref) will agree, because in my understanding the depth of this problem, the level of decomposition of the economy… much deeper than something that can simply be corrected with the help of digitization.Anatoly Chubais Chairman of the Board of UK “RUSNANO” (quoted by TASS)
Digitization is an important and useful process, “but certainly not a panacea for all our ills,” he concluded.
