256

A delegation from Indonesia is in Jamaica to explore opportunities for joint projects in a number of areas.

These include security and immigration, tourism and craft development, sports and culture and scientific research and nutraceuticals.

The delegation met with Jamaican government officials on Monday at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade in Kingston.

The two-day meeting is the third between the parties under the Jamaica/Indonesia Joint Commission for Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation, established in October 1996.

In 2003, Jamaica hosted the inaugural meeting of the Joint Commission in Kingston, with the second meeting held in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta in 2007.
