Dan Nica, the IT&C Minister, present at the "Fighting the brain
drain phenomenon" seminary, one of the sections of the SE Europe Meetings,
has discussed the efforts Romania made during the past years in order to
reduce the number of specialists that chose to leave the country. The efforts
are found now in a governmental support for specialists, incentives for
the software specialists and encouragement to develop an internal IT market
through consolidating the information society.
According to a recent study, Romania ranks 20th in the top of the countries
with over 20 million inhabitants as level of educational, technical and
scientific training of the human resources. "On a governmental level,
we consider that this advantage should be maintained", said Nica.
The IBM representative participating in the event appreciated that Romania
is a model for other countries, in the approach of this subject, a model
that should be considered by many other countries confronted with the
same brain-drain problem. The representative of the Management School
in Bled, Danica Purg, also remarked that the Romanian students are always
well trained and obtain excellent results.
