The lack of skilled workers can seriously affect industry and job growth. In ILO's interview with Tatjana Vucic, Director of BIT Alliance, the largest IT business association in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Ms. Vucic talks about the IT industry's potential in BiH to offer more than 30,000 new job opportunities for specialists in the next eight years. However, finding qualified staff remains a key growth hurdle. In 2021, BIT Alliance and ILO jointly analyzed the skills deficits in the IT industry and identified priority interventions. The resulting Strategic Plan on Skills Development for the IT Sector in BiH will be published in the first quarter of 2022.
