The government of Jamaica strengthens partnership with the EU
The Government of Jamaica, through the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service held a visibility ceremony, on the Financing Agreement with the European Union (EU), to address Environmental and Climate Change challenges through the improved Forest Management in Jamaica Programme. Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Nigel Clarke, DPhil., M.P. in his opening remarks, used the opportunity to recognise what he called “an incredible partnership” between the government of Jamaica and the European Union.
“Today we are highlighting one of the more recent grants and it is the grant of Sixteen Million, Six Hundred and Ninety-Five Thousand EURO (€16,695,000.00) from the EU to the Government of Jamaica, a grant that is focused on Climate Change issues and Forestry Management issues, Minister Clarke said. He further noted, “It is also important for us to recognise that, this contribution has yielded tangible, demonstrable, and that goes to show that Jamaica is a partner on which the European Union can depend. When you support us with grant resources, we implement the policies that we commit to implement.”
