HP to Open Georgia Center

TBILISI — Hewlett-Packard will export IT services to clients in Eastern Europe and former Soviet republics from its first IT shared services center in Georgia, the Economy and Sustainable Development Ministry said Wednesday.

The U.S. company will provide services to clients such as PepsiCo and Societe Generale using Georgian specialists, ministry official Irakli Kashibadze said. “The center will include a data center, help desks and software development.”

Kashibadze said as many as 1,000 people will be employed in the facility, which will have three locations. HP investment will reach tens of millions of dollars and the company will provide training for local IT staff. A memorandum has been already signed. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
