Abstract The 5th Caribbean Ministerial Consultation on Regional Cooperation for E-government Capacity Building (Barbados, June 2004) adopted the Action-Oriented E-Government Strategy for Countries of the Caribbean Region, 2004-2007. In embracing the Strategy, as a framework within which the governments of the region could develop their own national strategies and formulate national and regional programmes in the area of e-Government, the Meeting also agreed on various actions to support its implementation, including the establishment of a regional Technical and Advisory Support Facility (TASF). At the services of national and regional e-Government efforts, the TASF, operational since September 2005, enhances regional cooperation through the coordination of all e-Government activities executed in the Region, and through the sharing of information, data and experiences. The TASF is expected to play a catalytic role in supporting the development of national e-Government capacity in the Caribbean and in increasing the exchange of experiences and practices with the neighboring Region of Central America. As a result, the technical and advisory services provided will increase the chances of the Caribbean to grow stronger as Region, while reducing the existing gaps with regard to the application of ICT within the Public Administration at national level.
