EXPERT OPINION

Review doctor of economic Sciences, Professor Nikita KRICHEVSKY:

“A fair share of rationality in the idea of import substitution is present, although in places there are excesses. In this case, the Ministry of industry and trade of the rights to all hundred percent. Those foreign ATMs even with the established Russian software can transmit information overseas. Not to mention cell phones and computers. On the other hand, if the procurement will purchase only domestic radio equipment, its manufacturers will have to raise involuntarily the quality. After all, they understand that a scandal would break when, for example, is made in their factories lights suddenly go out. So a new document will benefit all”.
