Adviser to the Head of the Analytical Center Yury Amosov believes that the numbers of programmers in the market grows every year, but the companies are still missing them. He told this to a reporter of Kommersant FM.

“The Ministry of Communications set the task to increase the number of state-funded places in IT a long time ago,” noticed Ammosov. All the same, according to the expert, there are too few, about 12-15 thousands. “For our country this is not enough because in developed economies about 40% of all positions are connected with IT,” Ammosov said.
