On February 24, the russian federation launched a brazen attack against Ukraine and its citizens using a rough maneuver of firepower. The destructive intent has resulted in fatalities and injured civilians, demolished homes and caused inoperative businesses all over the country. The war has brought unconventional changes to the Ukrainian business resulting in some suspending of their activities. Meanwhile, the IT industry proves its resilience and keeps working. Here, the IT Export Alliance members have regained strength within the Union and are ready to continue delivering high-quality services and products, minimizing the effects of the war.
We are pleased to announce that jointly with the Norwegian-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce we will be organizing a webinar “Ukrainian IT Industry During the War”, where the IT Export Alliance members will share the insights on how they 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.
