Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Andrey Belousov, addressing the higher chamber of the Russian parliament on Wednesday, named blockchain as one of the technologies that the government will prioritize in the near future.

In addition to blockchain, he named a number of other key technologies: AI, quantum computing, new materials, quantum sensing, microelectronics, Internet of Things, 5G technologies, quantum communications and energy.

Belousov also said in order to foster the development of these technologies, the government would have to create a new venture ecosystem:

The task before us is to practically re-create a system of venture financing that attracts private capital and public-private partnership. Relevant proposals from industry have already come in.
