Caribbean Telecommunications Union

In 1989, the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU) was established in Nassau, The Bahamas by the Heads of CARICOM Governments in an atmosphere of cautiousness about setting-up new organizations. In 1990, the Organization established its Headquarters in Barbados, on agreement with that Government, but it was relocated to the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, where it continues to function in accordance with the terms of a Headquarters Agreement, dated April 8, 1993. At the time of the establishment of CTU, the role played by the operator-group, CANTO, and Technical Assistance by the International Telecommunication Union, was already of significant value. CTU has a multi-stakeholder membership that includes CARICOM states, non-CARICOM states, private sector organizations and non-governmental agencies.
