The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis, in partnership with the Embassy of Taiwan, is launching a refurbishment project for the country’s Information and Communication Technology Center.

Stanley Knight, Permanent Secretary with responsibility for Communications, said that the upgrade to the ICT Center was “essential” to the government’s larger vision for the technology sector in St Kitts and Nevis.

“It was the national data center that housed the government servers and served as a hub of innovation and excellence,” Knight said.

“The ICT Center represents the ongoing partnership and goodwill between the Government and people of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis.”

JoAnna Huang, an official at the Taiwanese Embassy in St Kitts said that the parties have cooperated on the project since 2007, and that due to a heavy storm in 2012 the center was badly damaged and in need of repair.

“The Government of the Republic of China heard the news and decided to support the renovation project,” she said.
