Ukrainian IT Industry during the war

  • 24.05.2022
  • 10:00 - 11:15

The war in Ukraine has had devastating effects on the local economy and the global supply chains, many businesses have suspended their activities for safety reasons. Meanwhile, the IT industry keeps working, attracting regular foreign exchange earnings to the state budget, and minimizing the impact of the war. Despite some IT professionals going through the process of relocation within or beyond the Ukrainian borders, they are still determinedly carrying on with their operations and service delivery. 

We are pleased to announce that jointly with the IT Ukraine Association and IT Export Alliance members, we will be organizing a webinar “Ukrainian IT Industry During the War”, where will share the insights on how companies are running their businesses under the circumstances of war,  how crucial international support, contracting and launching new projects with Ukrainian developers is for bolstering the Ukrainian economy.
