Stating that cyberspace, digital economy and information revolution in today's world is a reality and we cannot avoid it, he clarified, "If we want to move in this direction quickly, it is impossible without the use of information technology, and if this technology is left out, it will not be possible to receive and provide services from the government quickly".

The President noted, "During the pandemic, millions of services were provided to the people through cyberspace in the shortest possible time, and this required the provision of the necessary infrastructure and facilities, which was seriously considered in the Eleventh and Twelfth Governments".

"If we want to fight corruption and rent-seeking, the way is still to use information technology and cyberspace," he said, adding, "By creating transparency, we can take steps to fight corruption, and transparency is almost impossible without access to information technology".
