Armenian PM predicts 5000 IT jobs “in the near future”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Preliminary forecasts suggest that Armenia’s IT sector will offer 5000 jobs in the near future, prime minister Karen Karapetyan said at a meeting with representatives of diplomatic missions.

“The IT sector has the potential to become one of the drivers of the economy,” he said.

“However, we have a simple problem: we prepare 400-500 specialists each year, while there is demand for 2000 professionals. The higher education system does not reflect market demand.”

“We need to change the system as our forecasts predict 5000 jobs in the near future,” Karapetyan said, adding that “we’ll have a whole different country in 10 years’ time.”
