Science & Technology do Matter When It Comes to Socio-Economic Developments
Numerous appeals have stressed the role of Science & Technology as enablers for change and socio-economic progress, and in one instance (here).

Of course, it goes without saying that the expansion of such capacities goes along with the integration of constructive dialogues, and above all a clear understanding of the relationships between the enhancement of quality of life and continuous developments for new technologies as they should befall within the spectrums of various economic, political and social determinants.

At these junctures a known problematique to counter the ripple effects of “digital divide” or “technological divide”, comes with the notion of “equal distribution” in technological innovations within and between countries, through broad legislative authorities.
And a better way to reach those goals, is to work toward the implementation of equal architectures to bridge the gaps in terms of knowledge base between developed and developing nations.

In his own words, Dr. Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada:

The Caribbean must collectively harness science and technology or risk falling further behind the developed world, says Grenadian Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell, who holds the portfolio within CARICOM.
