The Caribbean ICT Roadshow is an initiative of the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU) designed to raise awareness of the transformative potential of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for Caribbean development.  The theme for the Roadshow is “Harnessing the Power of Innovation - the Engine for ICT-enabled Caribbean Development”. Its goals are to build awareness and educate citizens on the innovative and effective use of ICT in every sphere of endeavour and to promote innovation in the application of ICT to Caribbean challenges in government, the private sector and civil society.

The Roadshow has already visited eighteen Caribbean countries. This will be its second visit to Curacao; the first visit was in 2009.

The Roadshow is customized to reflect the national circumstances of each country it visits, with a programme of activities designed to foster a spirit of innovation in ICT development.
