21st CENTURY GOVERNMENT
Enhancing connections...Accelerating progress
The Government of the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis, in collaboration with the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU), is hosting ICT Week – St. Kitts & Nevis. Permanent Secretaries and Chief Technical Officers of Ministries responsible for ICT, Regulators, executives from the private sector and senior stakeholders from the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector, from across the region, will attend the Week’s activities.
The Week will also include the 17th Caribbean Ministerial Strategic ICT Seminar (CMSIS17) from 26th to 27th September 2018. The theme of the Seminar is 21st Century Government – Enhancing Connections…Accelerating Progress.
This seminar seeks to build on the momentum established at the Summit for Heads of Government and the Symposium held in January 2018 in Antigua. At those events the Heads of Government present generally agreed that the region should work towards the achievement of 21st Century Government and to accelerate the establishment of a Single ICT Space in the region. In his address to the Summit Prime Minister Mitchell, CARICOM Head of Government with lead responsibility for ICT, eloquently delivered the message that now is a time for action as the region has been talking far too long and has not achieved these objectives.
It will continue the CTU’s focus on the promotion of 21st Century Government: citizen-centric, seamless Governments that use ICT to enhance their effectiveness, efficiency and transparency in the delivery of services and discharging their responsibilities to their citizens. With the sub-theme “Enhancing Connections … Accelerating Progress”, the Seminar will explore current and emerging technologies for increasing connections among and within stakeholder groups in order to accelerate progress towards 21st Century Government and the ultimate goal of ICT-enabled Caribbean development.
We look forward to hosting you in St. Kitts and Nevis!
