“We have been successfully cooperating with Ukraine for several years, providing it with key opportunities and exchanging knowledge. Under this renewed agreement, we will deepen our cooperation with Ukraine to support its modernization of information technology and communication services, as well as identify areas where staff training may be required. Our experts are ready to continue this critical partnership” – said Ludwig Decamps, General Manager of NCI.

The memorandum was signed by the Ambassador of Ukraine, the Representative of Ukraine to NATO Natalia Halibarenko and the General Manager of NCI Ludwig Decamps.
