IT 2 BUSINESS catalogue is an important element of the systematic support towards increased ICT competitiveness in Eastern European and Caucasus countries by the USAID funded RCI (Regional Competitiveness Initiative) project. So far we have achieved higher maturity of software and IT companies.
Now, on that base we aim at facilitating the direct contacts between this sector and companies from the other economic sectors such as Tourism, Banking/ Finance, Food Industry, Manufacturing, Agro Business and others. We began with a selection of 71 software products and services of highest quality presented by 33 companies from the region of Eastern Europe and Caucasus and hope to expand the catalogue more and more in the future. Cross-sector and cross-border collaboration will further unravel the regional economic capacity.
