    Speaking at the ceremony establishing a regional broadband network connecting all CARICOM countries, Dr. Mitchell was acknowledged for his contribution and for encouraging other CARICOM leaders to put the necessary regional mechanism in place to develop a Regional ICT strategy that will propel the Caribbean to becoming an information and knowledge society.

The project was initiated by a US$ 6.3 Million dollar contract with LIME signed in Grenada on July 16th, 2011. Caribnet will also connect Caribbean institutions to like institutions in Europe, USA, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
