This was stated bythe chairman of the Bulgarian Association of Software Companies George Brashnarov at the forum "Digital agenda of Europe - Reality or Still a Challenge?", organized on the occasion of the visit in Bulgaria of the Vice President of the European Commission Neelie Kroes responsible for the Digital Agenda of Europe.

Brashnarov presented to an international audience the results of a BASCOM study among the leading IT companies. It shows that if the business of technology companies in Bulgaria is growing at same pace as this is happening today, in 1-2 years they will need three times as more engineers. "A critical question is how this highly qualified staff will br available" - Brashnarov said, adding that the software industry could managed to maintain its upward development as even in the last years of crisis software companies continue to report growth.
