Caribbean ICT Roadshow in Belize

The Caribbean ICT Roadshow in October 9th-12th 2012 in Belize was relatively successful in achieving the overall objectives envisioned by the planning committee. The objectives were twofold; namely, to draw awareness to the power of technology and the innovative possibilities of ICTs that exist in Belize as well as to educate the youth of the dangers of cyber space.

In conclusion, given the number of students/teachers that participated and received the messages of the dangers of cyber crimes, it is believed that the Ministry of Energy, Science &Technology and Public Utilities accomplished an important task towards the education of our youth not only discussing the benefits of technology but also of the reality that there are new wave of criminals that intrudes our privacy for wrongful acts. Nationally, the Ministry has received measurable success as a first step in addressing the many facets of ICTs as it relates to national development.
