The National Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Plan of Trinidad and Tobago for the period 2018-2022, branded as the ICT Blueprint, is comprised of a comprehensive system of strategies, initiatives, programmes and projects which build upon the initial Fastforward plan (2003-2008) – which focused on ‘connectivity’ – and its successor smarTT (2014-2018), where focus was shifted to uptake and usage. Although, the underlying themes in the continuum of national ICT plans are directed at leveraging the power of people by harnessing the power of ICT, the ICT Blueprint focuses primarily on the following five strategic themes:
- Improving connectivity
- Increasing Human Capacity
- Digital Government
- Fostering Economic Development
- Advancing Environmental and Societal Benefits
Based on these strategic themes, the Authority is recognized by the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago as one of the driving agencies for the implementation of the ICT Blueprint. With this in mind, the Authority is directly responsible for some of the programme and projects outlined in the plan. Additionally, the overall vision, strategic themes and targets of the ICT Blueprint guide the Authority’s policy formulation process and regulatory efforts in the telecommunications and broadcasting sectors in Trinidad and Tobago.
