Germany's digital economy boom being held up by skills shortage

Berlin (dpa) - Germany‘s digital economy is generating an increasing number of jobs, resulting in as many as 55,000 unfilled vacancies for IT specialists.

The sector generated 45,000 new jobs in IT and telecommunications last year, for the strongest annual growth ever seen, Achim Berg, the president of the Bitkom information technology association, said on Wednesday.

Bitkom is predicting that 42,000 new jobs will be created over 2018. Over the past five years, the sector has generated 150,000 additional jobs.

Bitkom called on the government and the private sector to join forces to train more IT specialists. "We have to develop our education system in such a way that sufficient IT experts are available and in particular to ensure that the role of women in the sector is boosted," Berg said.

Conditions for IT specialists to immigrate from abroad should also be eased, he said. "We simply have too few skilled people."

Bitkom is predicting turnover growth in IT to flatten slightly over 2018. Last year turnover in the sector rose by 2.2 per cent to 161.3 billion euros, and this year predictions are for growth of 1.7 per cent for a total of 164 billion euros.

Turnover in consumer electronics is expected to decline slightly, given that there is no generation change in games consoles scheduled for 2018.
