David Burt, JP, MP, was presented the first printed copy by the Director of ICT Policy & Innovation, Dr. Marisa Stones.
“The Bermuda Government, through the Department of ICT Policy & Innovation, knows how important technology is and consistently promotes initiatives that encourage innovation through technology, e-skills development and e-entrepreneurship,” said Premier Burt. “This is a valuable resource for our young people. They can use this guide to decide what they want for their future and how they can achieve it.”
