Dear Fellow Jamaicans;
It is a distinct pleasure and honor for me to represent the Government and people of Jamaica.
With arguably the third largest concentration of Jamaicans living outside of Jamaica, the positive impact of the community of Jamaicans residing in the South Eastern United States of America reverberates not only in Jamaica, but also in their adopted country. The Consulate General also has jurisdiction over The Bahamas and the Cayman Islands. During my tenure, I intend to continue to foster the relationship with the members of the Diaspora which has been a vital community of support for their families in Jamaica.
My attention will also be focused on promoting the vast commercial and investment opportunities that are available in Jamaica, as the Government pursues efforts to grow the economy to ensure sustainable economic development. In all these efforts, I will be supported by a committed and dedicated team, whose primary task is to provide service in a courteous, efficient and professional manner.
I pause to acknowledge the many non-Jamaicans who have been, and continue to be, supporters of Jamaica - I am grateful for their partnership with and commitment to Jamaica and its people.
We are a people rich in cultural heritage, imbued with unmatched creativity, talent and skill. Let us all work together to bring these attributes to bear on the challenges that face our nation; working in the spirit of unity we can achieve the ideals embodied in the words "Jamaica, the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business".
The Conference will be held in Kingston, Jamaica, from 23rd to 26th July 2017, under the theme "Partnering for Growth".
