CANTO’s goals align with those of CARICOM Single ICT Space
The 35th Annual General Meeting of CANTO opened at the Guyana Marriott Hotel in Georgetown on Sunday, 27 January, 2019.
CANTO is based in Trinidad and Tobago, and is the leading authority for shaping information, communication and technology in the Caribbean Region and the Americas. It was founded in 1985 as a non-profit association of eight telephone operating companies. CANTO now comprises more than 130 members in more than 35 countries.
The four-day Meeting is being held under the theme ‘Transitioning to a Digital Region – Opportunities and Challenges’. Among the matters to be discussed are the use of ICTs in disaster management, artificial intelligence and fraud management in the digital age, redefining leadership for a digital age and the CARICOM Single ICT Space.
CARICOM Deputy Programme Manager, Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D), Ms. Jennifer Britton, will make a presentation on the Single ICT Space and its impact on the Caribbean ICT industry on Tuesday.
