When talking about the Bulgarian economy in 2020, one field attracts the attention – information and communication technologies (ICT). This is rather understandable. The sector is the third most developed one in the country after trade and industry. Unlike many other fields in the Bulgarian economy, the IT sector dealt much more effectively with the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Staff redundancy and salary cuts were significantly lower in the ICT field and some companies even increased their activities and continued hiring.
