We talked about assistance ranging from human capacity building to importing equipment for manufacturing electronic boards for needs of companies like Solaborate.”
This project has managed to employ about 100 experts, programmers, and engineers, while also attracting world-renowned companies that will invest tens of millions of Euros in IT.

The Ministry of Economic Development is focusing on infrastructure and skills development in the sector and this year has launched several major projects such as TechPark Prishtina, Kosovo Digital Economy, European Union IPA digital literacy funds, creative high and elementary schools and the Center for Digital Excellence in the Innovation Park in Prizren.
