WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Anyone of Jamaican descent, who resides outside of Jamaica or in Jamaica, can attend and participate in the conference. There are no restrictions.

The event will bring together a diverse group of Jamaicans from across the globe with Jamaicans at home. We seek to broaden the Diaspora’s involvement in the affairs of the country. We seek to facilitate and harness Trade and Investment opportunities with Jamaicans in the Diaspora. We also seek to strengthen and facilitate the ways in which the Jamaican Diaspora can further invest their skills, time and resources in social concerns including Health and Education.

Whether you are 2nd or 3rd or 4th generation Jamaican, a member of an organization, or an interested Jamaican seeking an avenue to contribute to Jamaica’s development – come, join us for meaningful dialogue and action.

SPECIAL EVENTS & CHURCH SERVICES
CHURCH SERVICES

Conference attendees are invited to attend and worship special Diaspora church services being scheduled on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of July. Organized in collaboration with the Jamaica Umbrella Group of Churches, the morning services will be joyful occasions for visiting Jamaicans to gather with Jamaicans at home for worship as we ask for continued blessing for members of the Diaspora and give thanks for the Diaspora’s consistent contribution to nation building and their fellow Jamaicans.
