The Government of Saint Lucia continues to see Information Communications Technology (ICT) as one of the most significant drivers of sustainable growth and development and is committed to ICT as a focal point of the country’s development strategy.

This week the Government moved a step closer to achieving a modern and globally competitive nation with the funding of a Multi-Channel Data Centre (MCDC) by the Republic of China (Taiwan). The programme facilitates the adoption of a common ICT infrastructure and architecture within the Government and promotes ICT as a driver for social advancement and economic growth.

It will facilitate multi-channel service delivery such as the Internet, mobile phones and the conventional telephone and is an integral part of the anytime, anywhere, any channel service delivery.

At a brief ceremony at the Office of the Prime Minister on Tuesday, his Excellency Douglas Shen, Ambassador for Taiwan to Saint Lucia, handed over a cheque for EC$1.3 million towards the project.

On behalf of the people of Saint Lucia, Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Economic Growth, Job Creation, External Affairs and the Public Service, Allen Chastanet, thanked the Ambassador and Taiwanese Government for their continuous support to Saint Lucia.

The Prime Minister noted that the particular project was long overdue for modernizing the public service.
