This is an opportunity to build equal relations, when a citizen sees his contribution to the overall development, and he has the opportunity to ask more strictly from the state. We hope that our experience will be positively perceived in other regions as well,” the Governor of the Nizhny Novgorod Region Gleb Nikitin said.
Possibilities related to the blockchain will be tested in the state administration system. Residents identification of the Nizhny Novgorod region will be allowed through the service. Contributions size of the residents related to the local budget will also be determined through the service.
