Prime Minister Deems Necessary Creation In Ukraine Of High-Technology Center

Prime Minister Mykola Azarov deems necessary creation in Ukraine of a high-technology center similar to the Silicon Valley area in the United States, he said at Inter TV channel during the Big Policy with Evgeny Kiselev programme.

“If we speak about five hundred thousand people going into higher education every year, then, probably, there is sense in creating such ‘valleys’,” Azarov said.

The prime minister notes, in course of his visit to Egypt he visited such a center, Smart Village, and was astonished by the scale of its operations.

Azarov does not rule out such a center to be created not far from Kyiv.

Silicon Valley is in the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. The region is home to many of the world’s largest technology companies, for the large number of silicon chip innovators and manufacturers and high-tech businesses in the area.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, then president Viktor Yuschenko in 2006 claimed an intention to create a Ukrainian Silicon Valley on basis of academic establishments and universities of five regions of Ukraine.
