OLIVIA Grange has said that Jamaica will be provided with an avenue to pursue new business ventures through a United Kingdom-Jamaica Trade Fair to be held by the British High Commission in Kingston next month.
In fact, the minister of culture, gender affairs, entertainment and sport is quoted as saying in a release from her ministry that this new business would be particularly in the cultural and creative industries with Britain.
According to the release, Grange was speaking Monday as special guest of the British High Commissioner Asif Ahmad at a media launch for the UK-Jamaica Trade Fair held at the high commission.
“In spite of its small size, Jamaica has received global recognition — the kind that only superpowers command and sometimes demand.
“Today, the name ‘Jamaica’ is never uttered anywhere in the world without a response.
“Our name has become synonymous with creativity and speed on the track. Put another way, the world knows, loves and respects Jamaica for its culture, including reggae music and sport, which many of you may know, I refer to as physical culture,” the minister said.
