Prime Minister Andrew Holness left the Island this evening leading a delegation to Singapore for a two day working visit. The revelation came by a post on his Facebook page.
It reads: I left the island this evening (July 24) for a two-day working visit to Singapore.
During my visit, I will meet with his counterpart His Excellency Mr Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore.
The visit to Singapore is part of the Government’s move to explore investment and economic cooperation in several areas.
The working visit is aimed at examining best practices in Singapore and will allow the delegation to see Singapore’s experience in economic development, ease of doing business, workforce planning and Singapore’s experience in infrastructure development.
I will hold a series of meetings with representatives from the housing and investment sectors. I will also receive a briefing from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on urban development and city planning.
My visit follows discussions held earlier this year with representatives from the Singapore Cooperation Enterprise, SCE, on the development of special economic zones.
My delegation includes Ambassador Nigel Clarke, Chairman, NHT; Dr Damian Graham, General Manager, UDC; Sharon Miller, Director of Economic Affairs in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade; and Robert Morgan, Director of Communications in the Office of the Prime Minister.
My delegation and I will return to the island on July 29.
During my absence, Minister without Portfolio in the Office of the Prime Minister, Hon. Dr Horace Chang will be in charge of the government.
