During their visit, they will meet with Prime Minister Holness, Minister Shaw and other members of the Cabinet, as well as key representatives from the private sector, civil society and women entrepreneurs.

WBG Board members are also expected to meet with farmers groups and visit greenhouses to see results accomplished under the Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI) project.
