Ukraine lacks IT-specialists

Ukraine is already now experiencing a significant shortage in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). But if to compare with the EU Member States or the U.S., which have faced with acute shortage of IT-specialists, this problem has not acquired those scales in our country yet.

The IT market of Ukraine is developing dynamically, so, we must take into account global trends and pay great attention for training of IT specialists in our development policy, chairman of the State Agency on Science, Innovations and Informatization (SASII) Volodymyr Semynozhenko stated.

According to experts, the situation will change already in 2018 and the number of Indian high skilled professionals will increase to 5.2 million vs4.5 million IT specialists from U.S.A. By this time, China will have nearly 1.9 million programmers, andRussia - about 1.3 million.

At the same time, the SASII chairman noted that the number of IT-specialists in Ukraine at the beginning of the year is about 250 thousand people, 40 thousand of them - high-quality certified professionals that create competitive export products.

In general, the field of information services will be involved 350 thousand professionals (in the export segment - about 125 million people, in the domestic - about 225 thousand).
