To this end, the Digital Transformation Ministry is currently working on four areas: digitization of 100% of all public services; training 6 million Ukrainians in basic digital literacy; coverage of 95% of the territory of Ukraine with high-speed mobile Internet; and an increase in the share of IT in GDP from 3-4% to 10%.

In addition, the development of e-Health and digital education was also discussed.

We have already built an organizational structure within the framework of the ministry in order to launch and implement our projects. And a specific deputy minister has already been appointed to fulfill each particular task and coordinate the relevant areas,” Fedorov said.
