Fortech at the 2015 Economic Mission in London

Fortech was present between September 29th and October 2nd at the economic mission organized in London by the Association of Information Technology and Communications (ATIC). Other 18 IT players from the Romanian private sector attended the event organized to promote collaborative economic partnerships between the Romanian software outsourcing industry and the UK business market.

On this occasion, the Romanian Embassy in London hosted a networking event to salute the presence of the Romanian delegation. The audience of over 100 included young Romanian entrepreneurs with established businesses in the UK, who were invited to share thoughts with the visiting delegation. The agenda was complemented by a session of presentations and one-to-one meetings and a round of messages from the Embassy. In his speech, the Ambassador acknowledged the Romanian companies for the growth path they followed in the past years. He also expressed hope that the positive trend will continue.

Thanks to its historical focus on mathematics and science in education, Romania managed to build a strong tech-oriented culture. This fact, combined with over two decades of successful interaction with mature markets, places Romania as a reliable provider of sophisticated software solutions and services for the evolving needs of the customers.

“While mature markets, such as the British one, experience a shortage of IT talents, Romania is still able to provide qualified software developers. Hence, it is an attractive place for clients who seek a reliable software outsourcing partner for nearshore projects as well as for those interested in augmenting their existing teams. And we are here, in London, to articulate that message.

In the future, CEE, including Romania, will have a really good chance of reaching the same position in software development as China does today in production”, commented Adrian Lupău, our Business Development Manager, who represented Fortech in London.

The UK business market is one of the richest worldwide. It is defined by a unique dynamic and consumption power. This brings lots of opportunity for growth, innovation and transformation through software, which countries like Romania could greatly benefit from.
