The strategy for the development of the information technology industry and of the ecosystem for digital innovation for the years 2018-2023 is a strategic planning document that sets the objectives and priorities for the growth and diversification of the information technology industry.
This policy document is part of the government’s efforts to further develop the IT sector, after achieving the goals of the 2015 strategy for increasing the competitiveness of the information technology industry.
Currently, the IT industry in Moldova is growing steadily, following the actions already taken. At the same time, the share of IT is not high yet, although the interest of investors is very high. There is a need for a new impetus, a new set of actions to achieve the objective of consolidating the IT industry and to give IT companies real opportunities for growth and development.
The government aims to facilitate the emergence of dynamic ecosystems through close collaboration with entrepreneurs, investors, corporations and other stakeholders, as well as multiplying IT solutions horizontally. In this regard, the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure has proposed updating policies to support the growth and diversification of the IT industry through this new strategy, focused on developing the ecosystem for digital innovation and supporting startups.
