Technology Innovation Fund to be Created

Minister of Energy, Science and Technology, Hon. Dr. Andrew Wheatley, says the Government is moving to make Jamaica the Caribbean’s leading producer of technology, through the creation of a Technology Innovation Fund.

He explained that the Fund will provide for the sustainable financing of technology-based and start-up projects.

Dr. Wheatley was speaking at the opening of a Community Access Point (CAP) located at the Roehampton Primary School, in St. James on April 21. The CAP site was funded through the Universal Service Fund (USF) at a cost of $4.1 million.
