On April 29, 2014, The Ukrainian Embassy in the United States will announce a strategic initiative called “Increase Profits. Support Democracy. Cloudsource to Ukraine.” to help the country compete for a share of the $288 Billion global IT outsourcing market through providing transparent cloudsourcing services.
Ambassador of Ukraine to the U.S. Olexander Motsyk will officially unveil the program at a reception on April 29, 2014, at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
“I am quite sure that the IT industry in Ukraine provides excellent opportunities to do a good business,” said Pavlo Sheremeta, the Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine. “This is one of the booming sectors in Ukraine due to strong education and the long standing culture of innovation and inventions that we have in Ukraine.”
The SupportUkraine.us service will help U.S. companies and government agencies find qualified Ukrainian IT outsourcing resources. The initiative is supported by TransparentBusiness.com, a cloud-based solution which allows companies to track outsourced work in real time and retroactively. Specific services to be offered include application, mobile, database and CMS development, as well as web design, project management and server administration, among others.
In 2013, IT outsourcing helped add more than $1.5 Billion to the Ukrainian economy. Ukrainian universities currently produce more than 30,000 IT graduates each year.
The April 29, 2014, reception is by invitation only.
