On *Monday 20 September - Friday 24 September, 2021* the *Caribbean
Telecommunications Union <https://ctu.int/>* hosts *CTU ICT Week 2021
<https://ctu.int/event/ict-week-september-2021/>* with the theme '*Regional
Imperatives for Digital Transformation Post COVID-19*'.

There have been many COVID-19 success stories at the national level within
CARICOM Member States, including digital platforms to manage testing,
vaccination programmes, and travel. ICT Week presents an opportunity for
Caribbean countries to learn from each other regarding what has worked
well, and what opportunities exist to share knowledge and build capacity
regionally. This is particularly important as regional governments seek to
create a travel “bubble” within CARICOM that would facilitate easy and safe
movement within the Single Space.

*Two public sessions will be livestreamed.* (all times AST = UTC-4)

*Monday 20th September 2021, 1:30pm-4:00pm – Joint Meeting of 43rd
Executive Council(EC43) + 24th General Conference of Ministers (GC24)
This session will feature presentations of the projects and initiatives of
the CTU Secretariat and Members.

*Wednesday 22nd September 2021, 9:00am -3:30pm – 17th Ministerial Seminar
This session will feature presentations by various ICT industry leaders and
is designed to bring policy-makers up to speed with new and emerging
technology trends that may require public policy interventions.
