The widespread use of information and communication technologies, new media, social networks, blogs, media platforms in the global network to assist government agencies to carry out functions and communications on issues related to the foreign policy agenda give rise to the phenomenon of “digital diplomacy”.

The digital economy and diplomacy can act as a new mutually complementary format, which overcomes aging contradictions, as a type of partnership and cooperation between countries. Combining competitive advantages in the field of information and communication technologies in order to achieve a common goal will help to build Eurasia that can open a new path for the development of the region and the world as a well.
