Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Message from Party Leader Portia Simpson Miller
The People's National Party is acutely aware of the difficult challenges the
Jamaican people are currently facing.
We note that much of these challenges have been compounded by the mishandling
and mismanagement of the country's affairs by the incumbent Administration.
Through the Progressive Agenda, we have been actively engaged in a process of
policy review and policy development; designed to quickly and adequately respond
to the new global economic realities and to take the country on a path of
genuine inclusive growth and development.
As Party President and as Leader of the Opposition, I have determined the set of
portfolio assignments best suited to respond to the emerging global challenges
while stimulating growth and development in a measurable way. The persons
assigned to each portfolio reflect a blend of youth and experience.
