Opening the event the governor of the Penza Region Vasily Bochkarev noted that despite the budget deficit the leadership in the region still finds the means to introduce modern information technologies in education, health service and other sectors of the economy. For example, every teacher in 2010 will have personal laptop. Moreover, a new textbook on information sciences is being created in Penza. «We see computer science as an information science, as it is common in Israel. We set ourselves the task to retrain and certify each teacher, using the experience of Israel as the be», — said the head of the region. In addition, at the end of this year the government of Penza will complete the project of creation of a center in each municipality to provide public services or, in other words, a «single window».
