The Government is reporting a successful end to Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller’s three-day working visit to Japan.

The Jamaica Information Service (JIS) said during the visit she signed a joint declaration with her Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe, for the strengthening of bilateral relations between the two countries.

According to the signed agreement, the countries will seek to cooperate in areas such as energy conservation and renewable energy and mineral resources development.

The parties have also recognised the importance of promoting dialogue for improving business environments and expanding investment opportunities in a range of sectors.

In the meantime, Simpson Miller has invited Japanese investors to Jamaica sharing with them the myriad of investment opportunities available locally.

The prime minister was accompanied on the trip by Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining Phillip Paulwell; Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister, Onika Miller; and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Ambassador Paul Robotham.
