there is lagging in implementation of technologies of electronic business, the electronic exchanges and auctions, electronic depositaries, use of non-cash payments for goods and services etc.;

level of informatization of separate industries of economy, some regions of the state is low;

development of regulatory framework of the information sphere insufficient;

creation of infrastructure for provision by public authorities and local government bodies to legal entities and physical persons of information services happens to use of the Internet slowly;

level of computer and information literacy of the population is insufficient, introduction of new training methods using modern ICT - slow;
