“I am delighted to welcome Ministers //Hoebes and Kandjii-Murangi who are here to participate in the Inaugural Meeting of the Jamaica-Namibia Joint Committee as well as our Jamaica60 celebrations. Since one of the focal areas of their visit is culture, we intend to immerse our special guests in Jamaica’s vibrant spirit, through our performing arts, including music and dance, which they will experience at the Grand Gala. Today, I’m particularly pleased to accompany our Namibian sisters on their tour of our National Gallery to experience some of Jamaica’s visual arts treasures, including the Pressure exhibition which is part of our Diamond Jubilee celebrations.”
