16 Ukrainian IT service and product companies are participating in the international Union initiative, implemented with the support of USAID's Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine. They are all eager to enter new export markets, which will pave the way to the expansion of their scope of activities, garnering new partnerships, and in the long run - developing a steady flow of projects to the Alliance's companies.
During the first stage of the initiative, Finland and Norway were identified as the key markets with the highest interest for partnering. Now the second stage is underway and the B2B meetings with potential partners from Norway and Finland are being held.
