The Internet continuous to have a tremendous impact not only have how we do business but also on how our society is shaped and continues to be shaped.

The recently held Barbados Internet Governance in July 2017 saw a panel of young Barbadians tell their story about how they are using the Internet and specifically social media to affect change within their communities and across Barbados.

As ICT professionals we encourage the wide use and adoption of such technologies as a force for positive change and therefore salute the Barbados Internet Governance initiate and the other work being down by our industry partners.
