The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has approved a roadmap for the creation of a single "Information Communication Technology Space" for its member states.

The roadmap, to be considered by heads of government at a CARICOM conference being held in Georgetown, Guyana, is seen as a critical element in accelerating the implementation of the CARICOM Single Market, a tariff- and non-tariff-free zone among members.

CARICOM Secretary-General Irwin LaRocque described the roadmap as "an exciting prospect" to enhance the socio-economic development of the Community. It could also boost those offshore financial centers looking to branch out into the financial technology and e-gaming sectors in the future.

LaRocque said: "ICT is both an enabler of development and a sector in its own right. The establishment of a Single ICT Space will provide harmonized ICT policies, legislation, regulations, technical standards, with affordable networks and universal access."
