I wish to congratulate the UWItv team on moving to its own dedicated channel on the Flow Network, which now allows it to broadcast to 15 countries, 24 hours a day.
This is a remarkable accomplishment in its short life, having been launched just three years ago, and reflects the commitment made by the University to inform, educate, inspire and express the rich cultural and intellectual diversity of our Caribbean people.
I know that a tremendous amount of time and effort has been spent ensuring that this move was as seamless as possible, and I appreciate the dedication and attention to detail that the Managing Director, Ms. Janet Caroo and the staff of UWItv continue to display.
This is indeed a proud moment not just for UWItv but also for the entire UWI family as we project The University of the West Indies as a global brand. Through UWItv we continue to leverage 21st century technologies to provide a platform for insightful discussion through rich content that touches on common issues, concerns and priorities for our region and wider world.
