Digitalisation- the Way Ahead

The “The ICT for Kosovo’s Growth” project, funded by EU office in Kosovo, implemented by WEglobal and Prishtina, aims to enhance the competitiveness of Kosovo’s digital and traditional businesses by supporting growth of Kosovo’s ICT sector leading to growth and new job creation.
