Speaking on Wednesday afternoon in a meeting with managers in the field of information technology and knowledge-based institutions, Dr Hassan Rouhani said, "Transformation may have risks. It is our job to steer those developments forward and to steer them in the right direction".

Dr Rouhani called the digital and electronic developments of service provision necessary for the country and said, "Today, without progress in communication and information technology, it is not possible to talk and communicate with the world".

The President said that today, with the expansion of the broadband network and the launch of many e-government services, a welfare and comfort has been created for the society, adding, "Some people think that a better life is in conflict with Islam, but the more prosperity there is in public life, the better it will be for the society and all people".

Referring to the great transformation in the field of communications, Dr Rouhani added, "Some people were worried about the dangers of entering this new atmosphere and even said that the harm outweighs the benefits, but the government, with a correct understanding of the necessity of this great revolution, was determined to create it".

Dr Rouhani continued, "I believe that members of society today have well understood and accepted this need".

The President further stated that since the beginning of the 11th government until today, the country's bandwidth has expanded more than 30 times, which is evidence of the creation of new conditions for society.

Dr Rouhani pointed out, "I personally held many meetings to promote information technology and e-government".

Pointing out that today a large part of the health system has become digital, the President said, "Another very important part that we sought to digitise was the trade sector and the launch of an integrated trade system".

Dr Rouhani emphasised that we must reach a point where if someone wants to invest in this country, in less than a week and even 48 hours, they can make the preparations in cyberspace, adding, "Today's world is a world of competition and we must know that we are not alone in the world and to make the most of the opportunities, we needed a communication revolution that took place in this government".

Pointing out that the outbreak of coronavirus made it very clear to everyone the need to expand e-government, the president said, "The transformation and revolution that took place in the last eight years was well felt during the coronavirus era".

Dr Rouhani stated, "If knowledge-based companies had not been established on the basis of broadband expansion and their number and activities had not increased and developed, how could we deal with this dangerous virus?!"
