Later in the evening, Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Dr. Ronald Robinson, is expected to represent Prime Minister, Bruce Golding at the awards banquet and will deliver the keynote address.
According to President of NAJASO, Cathy Tomlinson, the organization continues to contribute to the development of Jamaica through its numerous programmes and has continued to explore new initiatives that will encourage Jamaicans and non-Jamaicans to invest in the country.
“This year’s convention is important as it will give us the opportunity to review our performance and to look at finding new ways to improve our organization as well as to assist our beloved country,” said Ms. Tomlinson.
NAJASO was founded in 1977 to bring together Jamaican organizations in the Diaspora under one umbrella.
