Holness ... we have to take a strategic view on who we seek to strike up relationships with.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the Government is to review Jamaica’s foreign affairs and foreign trade policy to strategically align them to local growth and development targets.
 
Holness was addressing members of the Jamaican diplomatic community in London at the Jamaican High Commission.
 
The Prime Minister was en route to begin an official working visit in Singapore.
 
Holness told the Jamaican foreign officers that the country’s foreign policy must be useful.
 
"At the end of the day, the foreign policy must support the economic and social developments of the country. For too long our foreign policy has just been for foreign policy sake. We must get something out of foreign policy.  So we have to take a strategic view on who we seek to strike up relationships with," he said.
 
Holness also said the government must build strategic relationships that will complement the activities in the country.
