Before Russia attacked, Ukraine was one of the largest exporters of IT services and a popular IT hub in Europe, with an annual growth rate of more than 20 percent and export revenues accounting for nearly five percent of Ukraine’s GDP.

The war should have put an end to such impressive growth, but in fact the picture was different. The industry is projected to export $7 billion in 2022, up 2 percent from 2021.

During the war, IT companies in Ukraine have shown a stunning ability to adapt to new realities. By implementing continuity plans and relocating teams to other parts of Ukraine or sometimes abroad, catastrophic losses in the sector have been avoided. In Ukraine the IT sphere still employs about 300 000 people. These factors as well as some positive trends in the EU, such as decreasing inflation rate and increasing vacancies in the IT industry, give us hope to believe that the most difficult period of this crisis has been overcome.

Euro-area inflation returned to single digits for the first time since August, fueling hopes that the bloc’s worst-ever spike in consumer prices has peaked.
