ST. GEORGE'S, GRENADA, Monday, August 26, 2013 - GIS: Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell, and Minister of State in the Ministry of Communications and Works, with specific responsibility for ICT, met with top officials from iGovTT, a state-owned ICT enterprise in Trinidad and Tobago, to explore the possibility of establishing a state ICT agency here in Grenada.

Prime Minister and Minister DaBreo welcomed the team, and their ideas aimed at exploring the use of Information Communication Technology to modernize government services in the region.

The Prime Minister explained to the officials of iGovTT that the countries of the region need to “find practical, tangible ways within ICT to reach our people in the early stages of any initiative so as to get them on board, because if we do not move fast in enacting ICT to modernize our services, we will be marginalizing our children, based on where the world is right now. Therefore we need use ICT to revolutionize the region.”

Minister DaBreo initially met with the Trinidad state-owned entity, iGovTT, in Trinidad, and the talks advanced to Grenada, to meet with Prime Minister Mitchell, who has been the driving force among regional leaders for the advancement of Information Communication Technology in the region.

Grenada and Trinidad are interested in working together on a government to government level, to share information, enact initiatives and explore different avenues for growth in the ICT sector among the two countries. The primary aim of this venture is to reach and revolutionize the rest of the region with the use of Information Communication Technology.

The Trinidad state-owned iGovvTT is responsible for the design, development and implementation of ICT solutions in government services in Trinidad and Tobago.
