Chaired by President Rouhani, the session discussed a report of the National Center of Cyberspace about cyberspace economy.
President Rouhani stressed that lack of a proper understanding of the speed of developments in cyberspace and its effects would lead to “a generation gap.”
He emphasized that the government must work hard not to let the country fall behind the global process of the development of cyberspace economy.
Rouhani said that the effective use of cyberspace with an emphasis on strengthening national sovereignty and efforts to increase our indigenous capacity requires more investment.
He noted that cyberspace is rapidly exerting influence on the personal, family, social and economic life and is causing dramatic changes in concepts of employment with outstanding speed.
