“The Summit, which is being hosted in partnership with the Caribbean Telecommunications Union [CTU] and the Caribbean Centre for Development Administration [CARICAD], will provide an opportunity for the Minister to identify partnership opportunities as the Bermuda Government seeks to advance its own e-government goals as a part of its government reform initiative.

“The Minister noted that an extensive review of all of government’s IT and Telecom systems is currently underway.

“While in Antigua and Barbuda, Minister Foggo will also take the opportunity to get an update on the Caribbean nation’s recovery efforts following last year’s hurricane damage.

“Minister Foggo, who left the Island this past weekend, returns to Bermuda later this week. The Minister is accompanied by a technical officer from the Office of Information and Digital Technologies.

    Did she tell em that we can’t even manage a bus system on 21 miles??????

    • mixitup says:

      We’ve managed a first class bus system for over 70 years, I believe this Gov’t understands the needs and are actively addressing them… While the previous Gov’t did absolutley nothing to address the issues.. Nothing.

      • Onion says:

        That’s a lie. They tried to change but were continually thwarted by refusal to make progress by the Unions.

      • Onion Juice says:

        But we paid $77 Million for a sailboat race, I wonder how many buses we could’ve got for that?

        • Jus' Wonderin' says:

          And we made $300+ million off it ya dummy. That’s good math but mans not hot. quick maths is not ya specialty I can see! The only good math PLP left us with was with crippling debt….

      • Zevon says:

        The last government ordered the buses your lot are taking the credit for.

      • Ringmaster says:

        The previous Government was concentrating on reducing the budget deficit from $300m a year. It had no money thanks to the previous PLP Government. Despite that they ordered 4 new buses, 1 of which arrived today.
        Nothing can be done to improve the service until someone manages to break the hold the BIU has, which won’t happen.

    • Rasta says:

      She probably told them the Bermy voters sent the oba/UBP packing…..
      24 seats – 12 seats and that Micheal Dunkley is still the leader. LOLOLOL

      • Double S says:

        has 24-12 = jobs yet? Or is that not important to the sheeple anymore?

    • Onion Juice says:

      • aceboy says:

        You are upset that the boat-race made money? That is strange.

        How much money has the PLP MADE since they got into power?
