Young People Advised to Take Advantage of Opportunities Available in ICT
Young people have been advised to take advantage of the opportunities available in Information Communication Technology (ICT), as they are the innovators of ICT in Dominica.
This was according to Minister for Information, Telecommunications and Constituency Empowerment, Honourable Ambrose George, when he spoke at the opening ceremony of a Mobile Application Development workshop, on Monday August 19th.
Mr. George stated, we need to be aware of the importance of ICT in Dominica and the advantages of electronic devices.
Electronic devices such as mobile phones, he noted, can be used for a number of advantageous purposes, which is something we need to harness here in Dominica.
We need to work on building awareness in the young people, so they are fully aware of the various functions and full abilities of mobile phones.
Mr. George noted, we possess the intellect and capacity, but what we need, is to be able to apply it in our country to the best of our abilities.
This will aid in boosting the ICT sector as it relates to application development, especially during a time when the Government is working on bringing several of its services closer together.
He added through advances in technology, there is an abundance of opportunities for entrepreneurs, which is why the Government is working to create an enabling environment.
