Cabinet has approved Jamaica co-hosting the Caribbean Nations Security Conference 2023.

The conference will be held in Montego Bay, St James from June 5 to 19, 2023.

This was disclosed by the Minister with responsibility for Information Robert Morgan during Wednesday’s post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House in St Andrew.

The conference will be held under the theme ‘Strengthening Regional Security Through Informed Action’ and is aimed at enhancing regional partnerships and improving security in the Caribbean Basin.

Meanwhile Cabinet considered the recommendation for the award of a contract by the Planning Institute of Jamaica for the development and execution of a two-pronged communication plan that targets the main audience impacted by business reforms and the wider public.

Morgan said after consideration, Cabinet granted approval of the award of a $132-million contract to Engine Room Limited.

Additionally, he said Cabinet gave approval for the hosting of the 26th meeting of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Standing Committees of Chiefs of Immigration and Comptrollers of Customs at the Montego Bay Conference Centre in St James, during the period May 16 to 18, 2023.
