Between June 19-22nd, St. Kitts will be home to some 450 guests representing the intelligentsia of the Telecommunication World of the wider Caribbean. Expected to be present are Ministers of Telecommunications of CARICOM and the wider Caribbean, including the Dutch Islands of St. Maarten, Aruba, Curacao. In addition, representatives of all the major telecommunication networks in the area who are members of CANTO (Caribbean Association of National Telecommunication Organizations) will be here.

This will also be the premier meeting place for providers, policy makers, regulators and Chief Executive Officers. It is the first time that an OECS country will be hosting such an important event and credit must be given to Cable and Wireless, St. Kitts/Nevis who will be hosting this event.

THEME:

TELECOM LIBERALIZATION AND THE CSME:

OPENING NEW DOORS

This theme is sure to generate much interest at this time when clients and the public at large are hungry for knowledge on how the technicalities of CSME will be worked out. Naturally, as CSME is a movement towards closer integration, great importance will be given to updated, adequate and user-friendly forms of communication. Hence it is expected that the telecommunications industry will play a major role in opening up the doors of communication between these islands. The conference is therefore timely. In addition, the youth of the country are expected to participate and make this a meaningful aspect of their current affairs portfolio.

TRADE EXHIBITION

WILL BE OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC

One exciting aspect of the Conference will be a Trade Exhibition that is expected to display products and state of the art technology from some 70 Exhibitors from USA, Europe, Canada and the wider Caribbean. The public is invited to view this showcase of products and services on WEDNESDAY June 22nd from 9 a.m. to 12noon.

The Democrat extends a warm welcome to all visitors and future trading partners and hopes that the entire event will be extremely meaningful and rewarding.
