Jamaica’s Tech Potential Still Untapped

Sean Thorpe, the president of the Jamaica Computer Society, has emphasized that the adoption of technology to boost production is still untapped.

Thorpe highlighted statistics that revealed the 2018-2019 World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness report ranked Jamaica at 44% in ICT adoption, putting the country at 91 out of 140 countries, according to The Gleaner.

“To improve the national productivity through the use of technology adoption as an expedience to innovatively grow the national export market, a triple helix of government, private sector and academia will need to be more deliberate in its focus as the direct approach,” he said.
