Paulwell projects significant benefits for Jamaica out of CELAC meeting
Science, technology, energy and mining minister Phillip Paulwell is projecting that significant benefits will flow to Jamaica arising out of the meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) held in Beijing, China this week.
The inaugural Ministerial Meeting of the China-CELAC Forum is considered an important event in the relations between China and Latin America and the Caribbean.
Paulwell believes that crucial discussions held covered very important issues, which will bear fruit in the short, medium and long term.
However, Paulwell says he cannot speak specifically about the expected benefits at this time.
According to him Jamaicans will soon be able to see some specific activities emerging out of the bi-lateral discussions.
Paulwell was reportedly speaking with JIS News on route to Jamaica, after his participation in the meeting held yesterday and Thursday.
The meeting was attended by Ministers of Government of all 33 member-states CELAC and top members of the Government of China.
