The Dominican community is being advised to get prepared for the opportunities that will arise through the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector.
Parliamentary secretary in the office of the Prime Minister Kelver Darroux told Parliament during the budget debate that the sector will create several employment opportunities for Dominicans.
“Within the next three years, we will see coming on stream, several jobs within the sector. I speak of network administrators, software developers, database technicians and computer programmers…” he said.
According to Darroux, it is imperative that the people are ready for these jobs when they become available.
“That is why the ICT Department will work closely with the Ministry of Human Resource to ensure that when students are sent to study, that they won’t just study Accounting and Business. We have to ensure that they are trained in ICT so when they return they will be able to find a job within that sector,” he added.
