Deutsche Telekom is preparing a new large investment in Greece, entailing an IT and Software center in Thessaloniki.
In particular, according to a related announcement, Deutsche Telekom confirms its confidence in Greece and its development prospects, by investing in the creation of an Information Technology and Software center (Telekom IT hub), in the country’s second largest city, Thessaloniki. Work has already started, with IT Experts being gradually transferred from abroad. More than 200 additional IT professionals will be hired in Greece to better staff the center. The center will cover DT’s IT needs in Germany, providing IT and software services.
Licensing and residence permits
The contribution of the Ministry of Immigration & Asylum was very important for the implementation of the investment, as it activated the state mechanism and accelerated the procedures for the establishment of the center in Greece. Among other things, it facilitated the immediate transfer and relocation of IT Experts, ensuring the residence permit. At the same time, there was close cooperation with the competent Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the facilitation of entry into the country and the competent Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs for their registration in the health care and social security system, in order to complete their recruitment process.
The Telekom IT hub in Thessaloniki aspires to develop into one of the most innovative IT centers in Europe, creating value for the company and its people, but also for the local community and the country.
Peter Leukert, Deutsche Telekom Group CIO and CEO of Telekom IT, said: “We chose Greece for the establishment of the Telekom IT hub, both for the level and training of the country’s human resources, and for the hands-on support provided by State in investment initiatives. I warmly thank the political leadership of the country, especially the Ministry of Immigration and Asylum, for the swift and coordinated actions, thanks to which the Telekom IT hub in Thessaloniki became a reality.”
