Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett is encouraging what he calls a spirit of ‘co-petition’ between Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

Minister Bartlett says several points of collaborations between the two countries are already in the works.

Minister Bartlett was speaking this morning at the launch of the first ever staging of ‘Dominican in Jamaica Week’ at the AC Hotel Kingston.

He says there are projects to be pursued jointly by the countries in Westmoreland and St. Thomas.

Minister Bartlett says more needs to be done to improve air connectivity between the countries.
