Chairman of Rose Hall Development Limited, Michele Rollins, has pledged to work through her company to help Jamaica realize its potential as a first class country and resort destination.
Mrs. Rollins, who was addressing the monthly meeting of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the second city yesterday (June 12), noted that “with the present infrastructural developments on the highways and in the hotels, Jamaica has first world qualities.”
Highlighting new and future projects in Rose Hall, including the Shoppes of Rose Hall, Iberostar Hotel and Palmyra Hotels and the Montego Bay Convention Centre, Mrs. Rollins said: “there are so many wonderful opportunities and positive developments in the Rose Hall projects that have the potential of making Jamaica become the resort and country that it can be.”
“My main and largest goal is to share the culture, the spices, the foods and the spirits with the rest of the world because Jamaica can be a first world country. Coupled with what we already have and what is presently being developed, Jamaica has first world qualities . it’s time the world finds out about this,” she stated.
Mrs. Rollins urged all Jamaicans to do their part to bring out the most positive aspects of the country. “Let’s allow the world to see the Jamaica we all know; the Jamaica we have in our backyards. They need to see it up front when they get off that airplane, they need to see it on their way to the resorts. We all need to make it happen now,” she stated.
In the meantime, Mrs. Rollins said that her company will be increasing its assistance to children at the SOS Children’s Village near Montego Bay, and this summer, will be implementing a special programme aimed at empowering caregivers to create viable opportunities in skills training, sports and education for these children.
“Our responsibility is to take children who have lost everything and help them to become adults who can give back to their communities. One main initiative is that each summer about eight of our children who are between 15 and 18 years at the SOS Village, are placed in various locations of business for them to get valuable work experiences in preparations for the future. We also have football clinics for all the children,” she stated.
