Belmopan Launches Digital Connect Center for Free Access to Technology
Residents of Belmopan now have free access to computers, the internet, and various digital technologies thanks to the launch of a Digital Connect Center in the city. The hub was opened today through efforts of the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the Ministry of E-Governance. The initiative is a part of BELTRAIDE’s Accelerating Digitization Project, which seeks to promote digital inclusion for disadvantaged communities. Belmopan Area Representative Oscar Mira explained that the center will greatly aid students in the community who are unable to access the web at home.
The center is the fifth of six that will be established across the country.
