Konstantin Vasyuk, IT committee coordinator at the European Business Association in Kyiv, giving his comments on the event told to The Kyiv Post “Ukrainian IT firms are at a stage where they are making full-cycle products, rather than just programmers writing the code. Now, we are making complex solutions for customers, sometimes costing as much as $1 billion.” Answering the question about the main aim of the event he said, “We decided to make an investment in our own country,” adding that U.T. Gem helped present Ukraine as the brain basket of Europe.

Moreover, there were discussed issues of IT cooperation intensification, in particular, the establishment of R&D centers of the world IT corporations (Intel, Microsoft, Google) in Ukraine that already includes those for Siemens, Samsung Electronics, Huawei, Gameloft, Crytek and many others. Apart from this, another discussion aspect was the opening of Ukraine’s IT Center in the Silicon Valley.
