Creating an ICT enabled economy
The Government of Saint Lucia, Grenada, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines embarked on a project called the Caribbean Regional Communication Infrastructure Program or CARCIP for short.
CARCIP will benefit the entire 27.5 million population of the CARIFORUM region in both urban and rural areas , and will include operators, schools, hospitals, emergency responders, government ministries and departments,
The CARCIP has publications in a few magazines as well as news articles online and in print.
What we do
This component will support bridging priority regional connectivity gaps in Saint Lucia through several subcomponents, including a high-speed broadband backbone network which will provide affordable connectivity to the entire population of Saint Lucia, connect critical institutions including healthcare facilities, libraries, museums, community access points, and also connect the country to global networks such as the CKLN.
This component will provide targeted support for human capacity and business development assistance to nurture the regional IT and IT- enabled services sector. Funds under this component would contribute to collaboration with the private sector for business development activities including business incubation services, targeted skills development and certification programs with regional harmonization, and a pilot e-services program.
