Jamaica’s leader of the parliamentary opposition and former prime minister Andrew Holness will headline the Jamaica New Building Society 11th series of the Outlook for the Future meeting at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto on Oct. 27, at 7 p.m.
The 2014 theme is The Jamaican Economy: A Vision for Transformation.
Building society General Manager Earl Jarrett says “These meetings will allow Jamaicans in the diaspora to get another perspective on the vision our leaders have for the social and economic future of our country.”
Jarrett notes the vision will be discussed within the country’s ongoing program with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other critical economic initiatives.
“The presentations will, therefore, explore critical issues, such as the nation’s relationship with multilateral agencies; plans for the productive sector and plans for the achievement of economic growth; initiatives to improve education and strengthen the health system,” Jarrett says.
