ICT and Evidence-Based Practices: A Resonating Case for Antigua & Barbuda
In the knowledge economy, the promotion and identification of ICT clusters is vital to align and expand vertical and horizontal linkages among all stakeholders. And when addressing these perspectives, a government has to explore “best practices” vis-à-vis standardization mechanisms and policy regulations, as those components facilitate the identification of strengths and weaknesses in the development of clusters as they strive to attain optimal efficiency.

It is interesting to note that Antigua & Barbuda is strongly positioning itself when it comes to the development of strategies, and long-term competitiveness for its ICT sector. In this landscape, the stakes are seen as the capacity to work toward the harmonization of policies and regulations to engage simultaneous growth in employment and wealth creation. A great deal in this process relies heavily on the participation in capacity building schemes, in order to arm policy implementation with the best feasible evidence for practices, paramount to a strong architecture bridging the gaps between policy & research in development strategies.
