, where it will employ around 200 people.
CA said it had chosen
because of the highly educated workforce and the strong mainframe education offered at Czech universities. Wages too are lower than in Western Europe.
CA currently has only around 20 staff in both

CzechInvest, the investment and business development agency, is providing financial support to the new centre.
