State Minister for Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson, has underscored the accruable benefits which the digital applications sector can yield for Jamaica's economy, particularly for small and medium enterprises.
Making his presentation in the 2012/13 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives, on July 31, Mr. Robinson noted that the "apps economy", as it is commonly known, has the potential to generate significant earnings and job opportunities for Jamaicans, particularly young people.
"The apps economy is one of the new and fastest growing markets (globally). It's a market that is worth US$20 billion..(and) employs half a million persons in the United States alone," the State Minister outlined.
Mr. Robinson contended that this would augur well for Jamaica's small and medium size enterprise interests, comprising 78 per cent of the stakeholders operating in the apps economy. Additionally, he said a number of companies undertaking development of applications within their operations, outsourced this activity to small entities.

Mr. Robinson also outlined the benefits which the incorporation of digitization would yield. He said based on the content of the 2012 Information Technology report, a 10 per cent increase in digitization would result in a 0.60 per cent increase in per capita Gross Domestic Product (GDP); a 0.84 per cent reduction in unemployment; and a six per cent increase in a country's score on the global innovation index.
"In terms of governance, the same report said a 10 per cent increase in digitization increases a country's transparency index by 1.2 points. (The) rationale is that if government has information that is widely accessible to the public, then government will (be deemed) more transparent," Mr. Robinson said.

Speaking in the 2012/13 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representative on July 31, State Minister for Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson, said the aim is to create 15,000 additional jobs in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector over the next four years.
He informed that the HEART Trust/NTA "is developing specialised BPO training programmes up to the equivalent of level three certification. Even more encouraging, as part of the Career Advancement Programme (CAP), HEART is going to include business processes training modules for students, who are a part of the programme," Mr. Robinson said.
He noted that this will ensure that students not only have the academic basics, but will also have practical training, which will allow them to move from high school into the business sector.
Mr. Robinson said the main challenge facing the government in the ICT sector is the lack of commercially available space in the right locations.
He said to create 15,000 new jobs, the sector requires approximately 750,000 square feet of new space, which must be close to labour pool and transport links.
He informed that the Factories Corporation of Jamaica (FCJ) is going to be providing 100,000 square feet of space by next year.
