These forums have given thousands of Jamaicans in the Diaspora and several hundreds of Jamaicans and Friends of Jamaica living in New York a chance to receive first-hand information on developments and investment opportunities in Jamaica. The Forums also provide an avenue for members of the Jamaican Diaspora to have open dialogue with government and sector leaders.

Key Jamaican decision makers such as the Hon. Dr Peter Phillips, Minister of National Security, and the Hon. Dr Omar Davies, Minister of Finance and Planning have participated in the forums by delivering presentations on issues affecting the Jamaican economy.

To date, forums have been held in cities such as Toronto, Birmingham, Manchester, London, New York and Florida.

The 2005 series will feature Opposition Leader, Bruce Golding, who will present a critical analysis of the Jamaican economy, which will include topics such as “Macro-Economic Stability”, “Revenues versus Debt Servicing” and “Investment and Job Creation.”
