Minister of Information and the Public Service, Senator Arthur Williams has made it clear that Dunn’s River Falls will not be divested by the Government of Jamaica.

In a release to clarify information being circulated in the media today, Minister Williams emphasized that Dunn's River Falls is not among the UDC attractions slated for privatization by way of concession agreement.

The UDC attractions slated for privatization by way of concession agreement, that is, contracting-out the management and development of the assets, are as follows:

·        Reach Falls

·        Green Grotto Caves

·        Two Sisters Cave

·        Laughing Waters Restaurant and Beach Club 

·        Turtle River Park

·        Top Forte/Belmont/Roaring River/Malvern Park

However, the Minister noted that while Dunn's River Falls does not form part of the entities for contracting out of the management, the Consultants, Deloitte and Touche Tohmatsu, will be engaged to provide the Government of Jamaica with a strategy to improve the profitability of the operations, with the Government of Jamaica retaining management of the facility.
