The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC), and the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU) today signed a declaration of cooperation describing their intent to work together to promote the effective use of the Internet and Internet-based resources in the Caribbean.
This week at the CTU's 3rd annual Caribbean Internet Governance Forum in Curacao, the organizations vowed to undertake technical education, human resource development, and public awareness activities, and to share information and provide mutual support in their respective endeavors.
"Today's declaration is a natural extension of the cooperation and collaboration these organizations have had for months," said ARIN President and CEO Raymond Plzak.
"This will help the community work toward the development of the Internet within the Caribbean by increasing public awareness and fostering increased Internet use in the region," Plzak added.
By working together and sharing information, the groups can minimize the duplication of efforts and expenditures. The groups' activities may include educational workshops and seminars, roundtables with public and private sector participants, research projects, and information dissemination.
