The Government of Antigua and Barbuda continues to place a high priority on ICTs as an important tool for national development. The convergence and integration of communication networks and services, the explosive growth of the Internet and electronic commerce, along with the Government's policy of transforming Antigua and Barbuda to a knowledge based society are having a significant effect on the economic landscape.

Human capital, lifelong learning and quality education play key roles in the development of any society.

GATE, the Government Assisted Technology Endeavour, is a multi-million dollar partnership between the Government of Antigua and Barbuda and telecommunications giant, Digicel.

Digicel's partnership with the Government on GATE will leapfrog Antigua and Barbuda's place in today's regional and global economy.

GATE will focus on broadband Internet connectivity, innovation, entrepreneurship, job creation and sustainability.

Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister, Honourable Dr. Edmond Mansoor describes GATE as a bold step forward in preparing Antiguans and Barbudans for the next twenty years. This future casting is representative of the visionary thinking of the Government since the Government has been thinking deeply about what citizens will require in the future.

Indeed, GATE represents Antigua's gate to the future.
