This data comes from a diagnosis done by the Chamber of Information Technology and Communication (Camtic), with support from universities, in order to know the panorama and to provide proposals that will improve it.
In Costa Rica there are currently more than 400 people employed in this sector, with a reported unmet demand for another 3000.
Salvadoran firms require skilled labor, engineers and bilingual accounting professionals.
More professionals and technicians are needed to meet demand for specialists with the opening of the country's mobile telephony sector.
The market demands more IT professionals than available, and the problem is expected to grow.
