This year Jamaica and India celebrate 55 years of diplomatic relations - An appropriate time to highlight the great value we place on the relationship we share, but also an appropriate time to build on our shared aspirations as developing countries.

In Delhi I was honoured and pleased to meet with the Indian Minister of External Affairs, H.E. Sushma Swaraj; Minister of Health and Family Welfare, H.E. Jagat Prakash Nadda; and Min of Tourism, H.E. Alphons Kannathanam. We discussed opportunities for technical and scientific cooperation, economic affairs, multilateral collaboration, as well as, health, medical and wellness tourism.
