Economy Minister Points to IT as Fastest-Developing Industry in Bulgaria

Economy Minister Bozhidar Lukarski said that Information Technolohy (IT) was the fastest-developing industry in the country and Bulgaria was best known worldwide for its experts in the field. However Bulgaria is experiencing a severe shortage of around 10 000 cadres, part of whom will have to be imported from abroad, Lukarski added in an interview for private bTV station on Tuesday. The minister revealed that this was the trend on a global scale, where there was a similar shortage of IT experts, amounting to 1.5 million in Europe and 4 million in the world. Lukarski assured that Bulgaria is no longer known only for its production of wines, vegetables and fruits. Among the priorities of the ministry are included measures for improving the access to markets in third countries since Bulgarian producers suffer from the more competitive European producers.
