The Chairman of the new Economic Advisory Council of the JLP, Aubyn Hill, says he accepted the role in order to serve the country.
The reputable international banker says membership of the JLP was not a pre-condition to him being given the job by Opposition Leader, Andrew Holness.
Mr. Hill says as a nationalist, he would have accepted a similar offer from the PNP.
Mr. Hill says he wants to help the JLP prepare itself to lead the country out of its economic woes.
And Mr. Hill says he’s looking forward to debating positions with other members of the council and the JLP’s Shadow Cabinet.
