Recently, 11 companies representing Georgia’s information and communications technology (ICT) sector came together to create a business cluster to increase their competitiveness.
The cluster was established with the support of the EU-funded ‘SME Development and DCFTA in Georgia’ project, under the EU4Business initiative.
The main focus areas of the cluster are participation in public policy development for the ICT sector, dialogue with state agencies, and education.
George Keshelashvili, the Executive Partner at one of the companies, believes this type of cooperation will be beneficial both for the companies involved and the ICT sector as a whole, as the cluster will make it possible to address common challenges.
The ICT companies are keen to involve representatives of educational organizations as associate members so that they can work closely on ways to overcome workforce deficiencies in the future.
