11 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE VOLUME 9, ISSUE 12 Source News Editor, Caribbean New No, Dec 01, 2022 The Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU) and the Caribbean Centre for Development Administration (CARICAD) signed a memorandum of understanding at CARICAD’s Bridgetown offices. The Caribbean-based organisations operate in the space of capacity-building across the region and not only share several member states but also focus on key concepts such as public sector transformation. In his remarks at the signing, Executive Director of CARICAD, Devon Rowe reaffirmed CARICAD’s belief that the transformation concept is cross-cutting, multi-faceted, and not focused on a single subject or issue. He stated, “We are pleased to collaborate with the CTU, which shares a similar mandate and has the technical capabilities CARICAD does not need to duplicate. Working together, I am sure we will be able to accomplish a lot more and look forward to a long and fruitful closer collaboration.” In echoing Mr Rowe’s sentiments, Secretary- General Rodney Taylor expressed, “We are both institutions of CARICOM, and there is a natural synergy that we have always had. There can be no meaningful digital transformation without a focus on reengineering outdated business processes and changing mindsets around public service delivery with an emphasis on citizen- centric services”.
