In Russia, they will reduce the fee for electronic public services by 30%, as well as increase labor mobility of citizens

    In only 22 regions of Russia, more than 35% of citizens use electronic public services. The leader was the Urals District. There, this figure reached 47%. And in the North Caucasus, it does not exceed 17%. However, the government planned to achieve this level across the country by 2015. In this regard, measures will be taken to increase the interest of Russians in electronic public services.

    One such measure is a 30 percent reduction in state duty on these services. It was proposed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. For some services, the state duty has already been reduced earlier. But for such common procedures as obtaining a passport and registering a car, the state duty remained the same. “We need to calculate whether we can use this reduced fee for the entire spectrum of electronic services,” the Prime Minister said at a meeting of the Government Commission on the use of information technology to improve the quality of life and the conditions for doing business.

    The authorities also expect that the development and popularization of information technology will positively affect the labor mobility of Russians. To this end, a project was launched to create a portal and an all-Russian database of vacancies"Work in Russia . " The authorities believe that the portal will allow job seekers to find work in other regions. Thus, specialists will be redistributed throughout the country, receiving more favorable working conditions. On the other hand, the artificial shortage of certain specialists in certain regions will decrease. After all, now the applicants will be sent exactly where they are most needed.

    In December 2014, appropriate amendments to the law on employment were adopted, said the head of the Ministry of Labor Maxim Topilin. “We proceed from the fact that the base of vacancies, which today exists on the basis of employment services (which is 1.4 million vacancies), will expand. In the future, during the preparation, including the budget for the next year, we will simply consider the possibilities - it will require either internal resources or some additional funds, ” he told Kommersant.
