The Serbian government expects last year’s IT industry exports to total more than 1.4 billion Euro, a government press release said on Friday.
A report on the IT industry, presented at Friday’s session of the government IT Entrepreneurship and Innovation Technologies Council, said that IT industry exports last year were almost double those in 2016. The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.
The Council said that the IT industry reported higher trade than any other branch of the economy and contributed some 0.6 percent to the growth of the GDP.
It singled out the construction of innovation infrastructure, investments in human resources and creating conditions for a competitive environment as priorities for this year. Brnabic also singled out the expansion of the broadband network to some 900,000 households.
