ICT training an important link in Jamaica-India friendship, says minister
KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) -- Minister with responsibility for Information, Daryl Vaz said the training of hundreds of Jamaican students is an important link in the historical chain of friendship, common heritage and aspirations of Jamaica and India.
The information minister, who was speaking at the certification ceremony of a government of Jamaica and government of India ICT programme last week, said, “This is one of the most visible forms of Jamaica and India’s bilateral cooperation.”
He applauded India’s leadership and also commended the HEART Trust/NTA which is the implementing agency for the valuable role it plays in meeting the training needs of Jamaican youths.
“It has been well recognized that ICT is a driving force and a great tool for promoting social and economic development, combating poverty and facilitating the integration of developing countries in the global economy,” Vaz said.
He urged the graduates to position themselves to use ICT to their advantage as it is here to stay.
The governments of Jamaica and India signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in 2008 to establish an information and communication technology (ICT) centre. A US$1 million grant was given for the provision of the setting up of an ICT training laboratory. The Indian government supplied courseware and trainers from India who conducted the classes.
