MORE THAN $1 million is being shelled out by taxpayers to fund a five-day trip to the United States, by a four-man delegation led by Industry Minister Anthony Hylton.
The delegation to the World Bank in Washington is holding discusions about the establishment of a logistics hub and other initiatives of the Government.
Minister with responsibility for information, Sandrea Falconer, said Hylton and his team left the island on Monday and would return today.
She said at the weekly Jamaica House press conference yesterday that the cost of the trip is "between $1.5 and $1.6 million".
Falconer said the minister and his delegation are also visiting the United States' Chamber of Commence and the Inter-American Development Bank as well as various diaspora groups.
