Broadband and Consumer E-Commerce in Antigua and Barbuda

June 2017 Review

Antigua and Barbuda has embraced information and communications technology as a "key contributor" to the development of the country. To this end the government has established some key institutions: an Information Technology Centre, a Government Data Centre, and a wide area network. These initiatives have facilitated the re-engineering of the Customs and Inland Revenue departments, and other Government finance procedures have also been re-tooled. There is also an active Internet domain name registry which administers and collects fees for the .AG top level domain name.

A Strategic Plan for information and communications technology has been drafted and several of the objectives have already been achieved. Among the strategic objectives included in the Plan are the promotion of public awareness, access to government information, online government services, the provision of an e-commerce portal, affordable access to computers, and human capacity building.
