Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says his Government is focused on achievements and fulfilling commitments made to the people of Jamaica.

“I want to send a clear signal about the type of leadership that we want to give the country. We have to spend our time on achievements, on the real things that are going to drive economic growth and job creation,” he said.

“Our Government cannot be a Government of too many ceremonies. Efforts must be spent on ensuring that the things that the administration has committed to, we fulfil them, and that we spend our time wisely. Let us focus on getting things done,” he said.

The Prime Minister was delivering the keynote address at the dedication of the new Ministry of Justice building at 61 Constant Spring Road in St. Andrew on Wednesday (June 15).

The Ministry relocated after its Oxford Road offices were ordered closed earlier this year due to air quality issues and the effect on the health of the staff. A sum of $100 million was approved by Cabinet for the move.

The Prime Minister noted that priority attention is being given to strengthening the justice and security systems in order to arrest crime and violence.

“The Government is looking very carefully at ways to find additional resources to invest… for the attainment of economic growth and citizen security,” he pointed out.
