JMEA welcomes Gov’t sponsorship of Expo Jamaica 2023

PRESIDENT of the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA), John Mahfood and Aswad Morgan, chairman of the organising committee of Expo Jamaica 2023, on Thursday evening both welcomed the Government of Jamaica’s (GOJ)sponsorship of the “largest trading show in the English-speaking Caribbean” through the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce (MIIC).

Expo Jamaica, which will close today, was officially declared open last Thursday, April 27, by Prime Minister Andrew Holness — who was the keynote speaker — at the National Indoor Sports Centre. The venue has been used, along with the National Arena, over the last four days to house some 230 exhibitors occupying 348 booths.

Through Jamaica Promotions Corporation (Jampro), the export promotion and investment marketing agency of Government, the team at MIIC has worked with its counterpart at the JMEA in the planning and execution of Expo Jamaica 2023 over the last six months.
