«Now Ukraine is rapidly digitizing, becoming a global IT hub. My goal is to build a digital state in the coming years that will create comfortable conditions for every citizen,» said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov. «We have already made a powerful breakthrough in the field of public services, saving time and money for Ukrainians when processing documents, removing queues, bureaucratic processes, and corruption schemes. For it can be even more effective, and the ministry’s products and services to be well recognized and understandable to people, we need communication at the strategic level.»

Viktor Berezenko, the founder of the Institute of Cognitive Modeling, mentioned that the coronavirus crisis has accelerated the irreversible digitalization of the world: «Thanks to the work of the Ministry of Digital Transformation Ukraine already has services that are not yet available in many developed countries. And these are not just tactical decisions, but the implementation of a strategic vision for creating a digital state. These are cool initiatives in all areas of life that everyone will soon feel.

«The Ministry of Digital Transformation is one of the most effective institutions in the country, thanks to which the state gradually becomes a convenient service for citizens. Our goal is to make communication systematic, understandable, and effective. The word «digitalization» should not scare but be associated with the comfort and simplification of bureaucratic schemes. The Ministry generates a large number of innovative products, and we are glad that we will be able to present them to the public,» Paveletska said. 

The Institute of Cognitive Modeling and the Ministry of Digital Transformation will focus their efforts on creating a strategy to promote digital transformation ideas, and support achievements in the field of digitalization and the formation of a digital state. The parties will also cooperate in organizing all-Ukrainian events, participating in international events aimed at creating a positive image of Ukraine in the world, attracting international partners, developing Ukrainian e-business, as well as accelerating the digital breakthrough of the state.
