Prime Minister Holness adds: “Their collective expertise and networks will be invaluable in catalysing innovation, driving investment and stimulating our economy.”
The Prime Minister says the primary objective of the new appointments will be to identify potential investment opportunities and attract investment by promoting Jamaica as an attractive destination for both local and international investors.
He notes that two of Ambassadors/Special Investment Envoys are technology-focused and will help to accelerate Jamaica’s transition to becoming a Digital Society that is well-positioned to take advantage of global opportunities presented by the fourth industrial revolution.
