Address of PM William Marlin at the Governor’s Symposium on “ICT Governance – Shaping Our Future”

Address of PM William Marlin at the Governor’s Symposium on “ICT Governance – Shaping Our Future”

CUPECOY, St. Maarten - The topic of this Forum calls for a re-thinking and re-imagining of what a future St. Maarten should be like in terms of its use and integration of Information Technology in its everyday life. We could look at this from the perspective of government’s IT Department and what the policy is with regards to harvesting the fruits of technology for the benefit of the people.

It contains a wealth of documented information in regards to the challenges journalists faced and endured from the 1970's to 2001.
