China Harbour wins Project of the Year

The engineers and project managers of China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) cheered on hearing their names called as the winners of the prestigious award for the Project of the Year 2013 for the Westmore-land Bridge in St Mary.

The award was presented to them by the Jamaica Institution of Engineers (JIE) at its annual awards dinner and gala held recently.

The Westmoreland Bridge is one of the main projects executed under the Jamaica Development Infrastructure Programme (JDIP).

"We are truly honoured to receive this top award from our colleagues at the JIE as it shows appreciation for our contribution to the infrastructure development of Jamaica," said Zhongdong Tang, CHEC's regional manager and project manager for JDIP.

Manchester no longer safest parish

Residents of Manchester were last week Thursday urged to change the 'laid back' approach they had to their surroundings, as the parish is no longer the safest.

Speaking at a stakeholders meeting held in the parish, Superintendent Marlon Nesbeth said several wanted men are on the loose.

"Many of the residents are aware of the whereabouts of many of the criminals we currently seek and are not assisting the police in finding them," Nesbeth said.

US & UK institutions offering new law degrees

Jamaica's legal education will now be further enhanced by new undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes being made available by, and facilitated through, a strategic alliance between the Law College of the Americas and Northumbria University, the second-largest law school in the United Kingdom.

Founded in 2012 by Dr Velma Brown, the Law College of the Americas represents her desire to provide Jamaican and Caribbean students and practising lawyers with opportunities to pursue law programmes that meet the needs of a changing global market.
