The Government of Antigua and Barbuda, through the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and Telecommunications, developed a draft Policy for Information and Communication Technologies. The policy has six objectives:

  • Grant access for citizens to become active participants in the global village network;
  • Telecommunications to function as a catalyst for economic growth and development;
  • Creation of a dynamic ICT industry to provide employment opportunities and ensure benefits from the converging areas of telecommunications, broadcasting and information technology;
  • Training of personnel to provide leadership and guidance;
  • Independent telecommunications regulatory authority to regulate in a transparent, nondiscriminatory and accountable manner and facilitate effective competition; and
  • Social objectives in education, health, commerce, governance systems and national security will be enhanced and achieved by the use of ICT services and techniques.
