St Kitts and Nevis: The Federation received an ISO 27001 certificate from the National ICT Centre on March 6. The certificate has been presented by the Ambassador of the Republic of China(Taiwan), Michael Lin, to the country. 

In his remarks, Ambassador Lin stated that, in the current process of digital transformation of the Federation, the ISO 27001 certificate represents an important milestone, as it demonstrates the Federation’s determination and efforts to conform to the international information security standard. 

It is particularly worth stressing that this certificate is the first ISO 27001 certificate the Federation has ever received.

Permanent Secretary Cheryleann Pemberton, on behalf of the National ICT Center, received the certificate and gave her remarks. She emphasized that changes are never easy within government agencies. 

Considering the high standards of the ISO 27001 certificate require a comprehensive organizational change, it is quite an accomplishment that the ICT Center successfully passed the ISO 27001 verification audit.

This certificate marks the latest accomplishment of the cooperation between the governments of Taiwan and St. Kitts and Nevis. Taiwan will remain committed to working with the Federation to pursue better development and the well-being of the residents of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Further, Since its launch, the team of the Solid Waste Management and Recycling Project of the Tawian in St Kitts and Nevis has been laying down the groundwork for establishing a nation-wide recycling system. 

One of the most crucial tasks is to raise awareness of 3Rs- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. For that purpose, the Project worked with the Caribbean Youth Environment Network and The Ripple Institute SKN to organize a bottle drive on March 19 and a coastal cleanup on March 26, to promote the importance of waste sorting and recycling. 

The Project was also at the Nevis Agriculture Open Day 2022 to demonstrate how to recycle properly.

“People always said that it takes a village to raise a child. We believe it also requires a whole country’s efforts to establish a country-wide recycling system. We sincerely invite all of you to join us in implementing 3Rs in your daily life while we await the Project to launch scheduled recycling collection in June,” embassy said.
