Polish Software Giant, Asseco Poland, to Partner with Ethiopian Firms
Asseco Poland, the largest corporation in the information technology sector in Poland, is set to join the Ethiopian market partnering with a local IT firm.
The software company, which specializes in the production and development of software, is the seventh largest software company in Europe.
“Our focus is it to expand in Africa, particularly Ethiopia,” Dariusz Brzeski, member of the company’s supervisory board, said.
According to Brzeski, he and his colleagues met with high level government officials two months ago and agreed to establish a software company.
“We will mainly focus on technology transfer. We also plan to build a hub in Ethiopia that will enable us to work on other projects in Africa,” Brzeski said.
Asseco’s representative added that they are looking for local partners with software background and once they finalize the selection process the company will become operational in the next three to six months.
The company, among various other sectors, provides computer software solutions to banking and finance industries.
Apart from working with the private sector, Asseco also plans to work with the public sector, including providing software solutions to the education and healthcare sectors.
“We have installed our solutions and ready-to-use systems in some 2000 hospitals and 4000 healthcare centers,” he said.
