Rostelecom – a Partner Delivering Russia’s Digital Transformation Infrastructure
PJSC Rostelecom is a major contributor to Russia’s social, environmental, cultural, and economic development. Our programmes are a natural continuation of the public policy and our corporate strategy of digitally transforming Russia’s regions.
PJSC Rostelecom’s resources serve as a technology platform driving the development of Russia’s digital economy and taking communication and cooperation between all sustainability stakeholders to a fundamentally new level.
The Company contributes to the sustainable development of Russian society in many areas — enabling initiatives in healthcare, education, equal access to public services, transport upgrades, energy development, agriculture, and natural disaster risk mitigation.
Rostelecom is a partner for the government in driving the implementation of the Digital Economy of the Russian Federation national programme. Business, expert communities, government, and civil society have been pooling their efforts to achieve the Programme’s goals by 2024 across five focus areas: regulation, education and talent pipeline, cyber security, enhancing R&D capabilities and building IT infrastructure.
The initiatives pursued by Rostelecom under the Digital Economy of the Russian Federation national programme also contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. For more details see also the Investing in Society and Delivering High-Quality Services to Customers sections.
Our effective partnership with the government under the Digital Economy of the Russian Federation programme not only drives the achievement of our key objectives but also helps address the issues at the interface of our core focus areas. In particular, the Smart City project helps improve the quality of life for Russian citizens while building modern information infrastructure and boosting Russia’s overall economic potential.
Rostelecom facilitates Russia’s comprehensive integration into the global information society while focusing on building modern information and telecommunications infrastructure both at the regional and national levels. We have already started using FOCL to bring broadband services to healthcare centres across Russia and have been rolling out fibre-based broadband to schools and other community facilities within specific connectivity projects. Rostelecom makes full use of its R&D and production capabilities to deploy fibre across all Russian regions.
In 2018, the Company launched its new five-year strategy, focused on transformation into a key digital partner for households, business, and government customers. Rostelecom is evolving from a telecoms operator offering traditional services such as data transmission and storage, into a provider of an entire range of advanced digital services, while maintaining its focus on core infrastructure development.
Among other things, the Company’s strategy provides for changes in technical infrastructure, IT, HR, and other internal processes, including developing and supporting an advanced innovation management system. Successful implementation of the new strategy will allow us to automate, accelerate, and simplify connecting digital partner services, as well as expanding the offerings of our own digital services.
