The current state of the Program “Electronic Belarus” is presented. One may assert with a sufficient share of assurance that this State Program of Informatization of the Republic of Belarus for 2003–2005 and further by 2010 is the main mechanism of implementation of informatization processes in the republic of Belarus. On the whole, the “Electronic Belarus” program fulfills its tasks. Taking into account the objective circumstances retarding the program completion the goals of the first stage of the program will mainly be achieved in 2006.
