The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) says its upcoming annual conference will be focused on having face to face discussion with delegates island wide on the party’s way forward.

This is the JLP's first annual conference since two massive electoral defeats.

Acting JLP chairman Senator Robert Montague says in light of those defeats, it is important that the Party give its delegates an opportunity to speak to the leadership.

He says, it is also important that the Party listens to its base so as to help formulate policies going forward.

Montaque says he is anticipating vibrant and vigorous debates at the one-day conference that is scheduled for Sunday at the Jamaica Conference Centre.

The conference will be held under the theme: Vision, Focus, Build Connect.

Meanwhile, JLP Leader Andrew Holness says the new conference format is part of an attempt to ensure a focused approach by delegates.

Holness says Jamaicans who are not members of the JLP can attend the conference and will be given observer status.
