ICT is important for the trade between Norway and Ukraine, in particular, the export from Ukraine to Norway. ICT constitutes 60% of service export from Ukraine to Norway and 40% growth from 2015-2016. There is excess demand for ICT-specialists in Norway. According to ICT-Norway’s recent competence survey lack of right ICT-competence is the main barrier to growth. 38% of the companies report that they have vacant positions. The demand is only expected to increase with the digitalization of the Norwegian economy.
Ukraine is a popular ICT-destination internationally, in particular in the US, but also EU countries, like the UK or Denmark. Ukraine is on Garntner’s list over top 30 ICT- and outsourcing destinations. In 2017 Ukraine was nominated as the Offshoring destination of the year of the Global Sourcing Association in the UK.
