BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (BGIS) — Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley has called on those involved in regional institutions to embrace the use of technology to facilitate business.
According to her, utilizing technology would save time and operating expenses as well as improve operational efficiency.
Mottley made the comments last Thursday during a visit to the CARICOM Competition Commission in Suriname, where its chairman, Justice Christopher Blackman, a distinguished Barbadian and Caribbean jurist, welcomed her to the Commission.
The prime minister told Blackman and senior staff: “There are all kinds of mechanisms now, such as Zoom and Skype, that have made video conferencing as regular as a phone call. In that context, therefore, I really do believe that we need to stop talking about it and that we have come to the time where we need to put it to work for us.”
