Boost for digital transformation

Government’s thrust towards the digital transformation of Barbados has received a major boost.

This is in the form of a U.S. 40 million dollar loan through the Inter-American Development Bank.

Director of the Data Processing Unit in the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Smart Technology, Rodney Taylor says while the digital push will make Barbados more attractive to international business, a major focus is to bring benefits to the average Barbadian.

As such, some of the funds from the IDB loan will go to two projects which will support employment and entrepreneurship, the digitization of the police certificate of character and liquor license application processes.
