Diaspora Advisory Board

In 2004 a Jamaican Diaspora Advisory Board was established as an advisory body to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade with portfolio responsibility for Diaspora Affairs. The Advisory Board represents an important bridge between the Government and the Jamaican communities overseas.

The Board members are required to liaise with Community-Based Groups, Alumni Associations and influential individuals in their respective countries to obtain a clear understanding of the issues, interests and concerns within the Jamaican Community. In addition, they are required to brief their respective communities of the priority areas for development of the Government.

The Board currently consists of ten individuals who are elected by their peers in each Diaspora location for a period of two years.

The current Board Members are:
