The president of the Assembly of MASIT, Mr. Vasko Kronevski has expressed his satisfaction for the fast development of the IT sector evidenced even in the time of economic crises.
“ It is a sector that belongs to one of the most important strategic sectors, and since our country is a developing market, we expect to have positive results during the year of 2010. Still, the public expenditure will have the great importance since it affects the development of the IT sector” Mr. Kronevski emphasized.
Mr. Kronevski added that the state can have a very beneficial impact on the development of the domestic IT industry, and as for the staff, the situation is significantly improving, but still a lot has to be done regarding the quality of the staff, especially in the part of the so called “Soft Skills”- skills such as project managements, communication and correspondence.
The special recognitions were also awarded to the organizations and the public institutions that contributed in the previous years in the development of the Chamber. These awards were given to Usaid, GTZ, Siport, Ministry of Informatics society, Ministry of economics and to others.
