“We are the only country in the world that has built a 100% private IT sector. No a single cent came from the state budget. There are no other such countries. Yes, both our investment sector and IT market have built themselves, without help from the state. I say it not as a reproach. This is the fact to be proud of. This is our advantage. We are open to cooperation, but only if it corresponds to our common goal. “
