"We are transforming Ukraine into a country of IT companies and startups. Thanks to Diia City, the share of IT in our country's GDP will increase from 4% to 10%, and the industry's revenues will grow up to $ 16.5 billion. This will allow Ukraine to become the largest IT hub in Europe," he said.

In the spring, a new state program will be launched in Ukraine, under which vaccinated citizens over the age of 60 will be able to receive a free modern smartphone and a reduced rate for using the mobile Internet.
