SOUTH FLORIDA:  Jamaica’s Minister of Industry, Investment & Commerce, Hon. Dr. Christopher Tufton, M.P., will be the Keynote Speaker at the second Quarterly Movers & Shakers Breakfast to be hosted by the Jamaica USA Chamber of Commerce (JAUSACC) on Thursday, July 28th from 7:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. at Jungle Island in Miami, Florida.

The quarterly Movers & Shakers networking breakfast programs are being held in conjunction with the Consulate General of Jamaica for the Southeastern United States.

JAUSACC is bringing yet another practical business opportunity to the South Florida community in an effort to develop and strengthen trade links between local Jamaican and non-Jamaican businesses, and to highlight investment opportunities in Jamaica.  This Breakfast Program will focus on Agri-Business in South Florida and in Jamaica.  As a result, JAUSACC is reaching out to a wide cross-section of Florida businesses to attend on July 28th.

“The quarterly networking event is designed to give everyone who attends the opportunity to meet influential “movers & shakers” and new contacts who could have an impact on the growth of their businesses”, said Chamber president, Marie Gill.  “This breakfast will not only stress agri-business opportunities in Jamaica, but also the importation of Jamaican agricultural products to the United States and local production of Caribbean produce,” Gill said.

The guest speaker is Jamaica’s former Minister of Agriculture and current Minister of Industry, Investment & Commerce, Dr. Christopher Tufton who possesses a wealth of knowledge in Agri-Business in Jamaica.  Minister Tufton will advise the audience about initiatives in his current ministry, developments in the agricultural sector in Jamaica, and what opportunities exist for investment in the agricultural and other sectors in Jamaica.

Dr. Tufton is an expert in international business with a focus on foreign direct investment.  Having lectured in the fields of business management, entrepreneurship, and international marketing, he brings to the Florida audience a wealth of knowledge and experience in industry, investment and commerce, with a special focus on Agri-Business, ably suited for the July 28th international business networking event.

JAUSACC is continuing its commitment to bring meaningful events to the Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach communities, and through its “Quarterly Movers & Shakers Breakfast” continues to feature topics designed to assist local businesses in today’s changing global economy.
