“We all know that among the largest worldThere are leaders in technology companies, five of them from the USA, two from China. But states that do not have their own digital platforms can lose, if not sovereignty, then, in any case, a huge number of opportunities and, in principle, the right to the future in a changing world. When there is no proprietary technology, it turns out that there is no proprietary development. ”
