Microsoft Corporation is eager to open an office in Belarus, while financing new IT projects and training specialists. It hopes to sell software produced here both in Belarus and abroad. “We’ll invest in training Belarusian specialists, teaching them the most advanced technologies — including clouding-computing. In July, we’ll start working for the benefit of the country,” asserts Microsoft’s representative in Belarus, Mikhail Makhanek.
Microsoft plans to invite specialists from the World Intellectual Property Organisation to explain the importance of qualitative software for Belarusian organisations. “The transition to modern software leads to raised labour efficiency and improved service quality,” the expert stresses, praising the high potential of the Belarusian IT market. Mr. Makhanek notes that Belarus is a very promising country for young IT specialists.
