Discover Moldova and see why the country is becoming the new IT Outsourcing destination

Located in Southeastern Europe, bordering Romania to the West and Ukraine to the East, Moldova has evolved dynamically and has emerged as a new destination for Western companies to outsource their IT projects, software development and other technology-related services. Chisinau, the capital of Moldova is the place where most business activities from the IT sector take place.

Moldova has the potential to become a thriving innovation and technology development and delivery hub where highly skilled, multilingual, tech-savvy professionals are ready to develop complex projects and help companies achieve their business goals at better prices than average outsourcing costs in other parts of Europe or anywhere else in the world.
