Finance minister hits the road again

 

Minister of Finance Dr Nigel Clarke and his entourage are halfway through another non-deal roadshow, this time in Europe.

The jaunt, which is part of the ministry's annual calendar of meetings with financial interests and creditors, runs from July 9-13 with stops in London and Frankfurt.

The meetings will update a cross section of investors on the country's economy and on the economic policies being pursued to achieve growth, the Ministry said. The delegation includes acting Financial Secretary Darlene Morrison, acting deputy financial secretary, Economic Management Division, Dian Black; senior analyst to the minister, Stephanie Abrahams; and Bank of Jamaica Governor Brian Wynter.
