PM off to Dominica
Prime Minister Bruce Golding leaves the island today to head the Jamaican delegation to the 21st intersessional CARICOM Heads of Government Meeting in Roseau, Dominica.
Golding will be accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Dr Ken Baugh, and other government officials.
The regional heads of government are expected to focus on the relief efforts in Haiti following the devastating January 12 earthquake.

During the prime minister's absence, Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Karl Samuda, will be in charge of the Government.
Golding will return to the island on Saturday.
