History of the G20 & taxation
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development points out in its report that productivity growth has slowed in recent years, and the reason for this is the insufficient use of digital technologies by companies..
IN document it is noted that the rapid development of information technology creates the necessary conditions for increasing business efficiency. However, most companies do not use them in their activities. This problem even applies to the US and EU. European organizations use only 12% of their digital potential, while American — eighteen%.
High-speed Internet is available to almost all companies, but the adoption of other advanced applications and tools is lagging far behind. For example, 12.2% use big data analytics, and social networks — 48%. The level of integration also depends on the field of activity and the region, although now the relative costs of implementation have significantly decreased or almost reached zero. Resource management systems are used by 62% of companies producing computers and optical devices, while in hotels and restaurants this figure drops to 15%.
The OECD considers infrastructure development, organizational improvement and staff development to be the main success factors. According to the organization, without this it is impossible to achieve a high level of digitalization. Competition and ease of resource redistribution were attributed to the main incentives for development..
Russia is also trying to introduce innovative technologies in all spheres of the economy. One of such projects is a digital goods control system..
