Kingston, Jamaica, January 18, 2018: The Shadow Cabinet of the People’s National Party will embark on a three-day retreat beginning, Friday, January 19.
The Party will use the opportunity to explore new policy directions, reflecting on what has worked, what has not been as effective as intended and how to approach some of the challenges facing Jamaica with new solutions. This is in keeping with its preparation process for governance.
The Shadow Ministers will also discuss the findings of the Commissions on Land Ownership, Education and Youth Employment and the New Economy. The Commissions, which were launched last year, focused on the main pillars of the platform for inclusive growth under a PNP–led government. They were tasked to develop new ideas and proposals that would inform and drive Party policies in these critical areas, in line with the PNP’s consistent commitment to social justice and equality.
