Guyana lags behind region in ICT development
- GCCI President says telecoms liberalization ‘can’t come fast enough’
Guyana continues to lag behind much of the Caribbean Community in terms of effective implementation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) both as a cross-cutting component to impact positively on the other sectors of the economy and as a sector to stand up on its own.
“We are losing opportunities,” President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) Lance Hinds told Stabroek Business in an exclusive interview on Tuesday. “No one is waiting for us. Other countries in the region, including the smaller islands are busy re-engineering themselves to become ICT hubs. We need to act to develop our ICT sector otherwise we will most certainly get left behind.
