The Government says post-Cabinet press briefings will resume shortly, noting that the format is under review and that the outcome will be communicated to the media and the public.

Last week, the Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) complained that the press briefings have been absent since November 2017 and called for their urgent resumption.

“The government seems to have effectively abandoned the post-Cabinet press briefings... this is unacceptable,” said PAJ President Dionne Jackson Miller.

In a statement this afternoon, the Ministry of Information said that the Government is it committed to updating the country on Cabinet deliberations.

According to the ministry, the Government is also committed to open and accessible communication with the media and the public.

“In this regard, a series of communication activities, as part of a wider communication strategy, has been planned and so far executed to include the Prime Minister’s Quarterly Press Conferences, among others, and timely press conferences by Government ministers buttressed by other communication activities,”.
