Europe is ‘not losing jobs’ in the information and communication technologies (ICT) services sector due to outsourcing, according to the Foundation’s European Monitoring Centre on Change (EMCC), in a new report – Outsourcing of ICT and related services in the EU.
The report also indicates that the strongest growth has, in fact, taken place in countries where employment levels in the ICT sector are at their lowest. In other words, although the new Member States are behind the rest of Europe in the proportion of their economies devoted to ICT services, they are quickly catching up. Surprisingly, the report outlined, the lowest growth rates are, largely, in the most developed economies.
