Minister of Finance and Economy Mladjan Dinkic said today that the state intends to support the development of IT companies through a specially designed programme.


Speaking at a public debate on the state programme of support to the IT industry which gathered representatives of 50 companies from that field, Dinkic explained that that programme entails tax reliefs, grants for start-ups, the adjusting of the education system to the needs of the industry and offering support to exporters.

He said that the final version of the document will be prepared within the next few weeks and that necessary changes in legislation should be adopted in March so that the programme could be put into practice and in order to facilitate doing business over the Internet.

Dinkic also announced support to exporters in the IT industry through a special insurance system so that they could sell as many products and services on the world market.
