Madam Chair, Saint Kitts and Nevis aligns itself with the statement made by The Bahamas on behalf of CARICOM and wishes to offer brief remarks in its national capacity. Considering the rapid pace of change and transformation in technology, it is an opportune time to consider the impacts and effects of the multitude of technologies on the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

As I consider the theme for this year, the 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women, and in the context of the realities of economic, social and political life in St Kitts and Nevis, I am pleased to acknowledge the achievements my government has made in ensuring (information and) telecommunications coverage is provided across the twin-island state whereby internet access is widespread and freely accessible in communities at multipurpose community centres. St. Kitts and Nevis is doing very well in the expansion of broadband internet connections with over 80 percent of all residents having access to their own fast internet connection.
