In 2008, the European Union (EU) and 14 Caribbean countries signed an Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) geared towards strengthening trade and investment relations and promoting regional integration between the Parties and CARIFORUM countries. The EU has commissioned a series of sectoral reports to raise awareness of the economic opportunities related to the CARIFORUM-EU EPA to enable the EU private sector to foster valuable business partnerships in the region.
The Information and Communication Technologies Report is the sixth of the series. CARIFORUM Governments recognise the importance of the development of the ICT sector for economic growth, regional integration and prosperity and are taking numerous initiatives to increase investment in the sector, leading to opportunities for EU operators. The key sectors that offer a wide range of interesting business opportunities for EU investors and companies include ICT infrastructure, internet provider services, IT-intensive business process outsourcing (BPO), data services including data centres and hosting, IT consulting services and digital services.
