High-level EU team arrives in Jamaica

Stefano Manservisi, director-general for International Cooperation and Development in the European Commission, based in Brussels, is leading a high-level European Union team to Jamaica, starting today. Foreign Minister Senator Kamina Johnson Smith, in a release yesterday, said Manservisi will lead the high-level delegation to Kingston from February 1 to 2 for regional and bilateral talks with several high-level government representatives from Jamaica and the wider Caribbean. “Mr Manservisi's visit comes at an important juncture, especially as we prepare for a new chapter in the rich history of development cooperation between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group, of which Jamaica is a founding member,” she said. Jamaica recently held the chair of the CARIFORUM group within the ACP and is scheduled to assume the presidency of the ACP during the period February 1 to to July 31, 2018.
