Diaspora Affairs

Introductory text: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration is implementing a Mapping Jamaica’s Diaspora Project. The aim is to identify through survey responses how the Diaspora can contribute to the development of Jamaica, whilst also determining their needs and concerns.

The Diaspora can contribute to development through the creation of jobs, fostering competition, in-country business development, productivity and innovation. Connecting with and identifying capacities within Jamaica’s Diaspora through the use of appropriate actions that strengthen the government’s ability to engage and dialogue with the Diaspora will be the pillars of this initiative.
