Abstract

The article discusses the foreign experience of the leading countries in the development of information and communication technologies (ICT) in Japan and Korea. These countries are of the same region with similar economic models that have traveled at different times and with varying degrees of success from an agrarian country to an industrial power, where a significant number of high-tech industries are developing. The basis for the introduction of digital technologies was the National Innovation Systems, that include a community of the following institutions: government, business and the academic sector. Despite different starting conditions, ICT policies in Japan and Korea in the 2000s had the same priorities in narrowing the digital divide within the country and in comparison, with other countries, providing every citizen with access to high-speed broadband and using ICT to solve the country’s socio-economic problems. The global economic situation after the global financial crisis, regional competition, domestic problems, as well as the emergence of promising technologies are pushing both countries – Japan and the Republic of Korea - to seek new opportunities to increase their competitiveness in the global digital economy. This process is based not only on technological activity but also on the development and implementation of institutional and structural reforms, aimed at improving conditions for the creation, dissemination and effective use of digital technologies within the country. The experience of these countries seems significant for Russia for further cooperation in creating a single digital space in East Asia.
