The Government of Antigua and Barbuda and the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU), in collaboration with the Caribbean Centre for Development Administration (CARICAD), is hosting the a Summit and Symposium, the first activities of a programme  to establish Caribbean 21st Governments.  A 21st Century Government is one that makes effective use of ICT to deliver services to its citizens, and its internal and external clients. It is characterised by citizen-centric, seamless, open, interactive, efficient and transparent processes. The establishment of 21st Century Government seeks to transform the public service, strengthen economic competitiveness and promote sustainable development. Many countries have been introducing electronic government services but the process has been very slow. The 21st Century Government programme therefore seeks to accelerate government transformation.
