Congratulations!

Phillip Paulwell, Minister for Mining, Energy & ICT, Jamaica on your recent re-appointment. Due to the recent success of the People’s National Party – PNP, in the country’s national elections held December 2011, the Minister who held portfolio responsibility for Telecommunications between 1998-2007 was reappointed as Minster for Science, Technology, Energy and Mining – STEM. In a recent interview with David Nunes, Publisher for Connect-World, the Minister proudly confirmed the improvement in Jamaica’s e-Readiness – the ability to use ICT to develop ones economy, from 80th to 44th in EIU Digital Economy Rankings 2010 –

.

This improvement Minister Paulwell highlighted, was important because of ICTs role as an Economic enabler for job creation. The Minister, a previous editorial contributor to Connect-World, explained that he was determined to capitalise and reinforce Jamaica’s favourable image as a regional hub for ICT expansion by International organisations. He described his vision to modernise, strengthen and update the regulatory framework with the forthcoming appointment of an ICT Czar. He concluded, that the continued development of the ICT infrastructure Islandwide was essential as it will accelerate the delivery of eGovernment services.
