About the Conference

The Jamaica 55 Diaspora Conference under the theme “Partnering for Growth” promises to be an informative and rich experience in the capital of Kingston at the Jamaica Conference Centre. The programme has been fully redesigned to breathe new life into the format of the conference and the planned exchanges with participants.

Convened every two years by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, the conference is an important platform in Jamaica’s strategic effort to meaningfully engage with Jamaicans dispersed around the globe. The event brings together Diaspora business interests, philanthropic groups, and young people of Jamaican descent and Jamaicans at home.

Structured transnational engagement with Jamaicans and persons of Jamaican descent has long been recognized as an important avenue through which Jamaica can support and motivate the Diaspora’s greater involvement in the country’s affairs. Since its inauguration in 2004, the Diaspora conferences have been expanded in scope and restructured to emphasize the invaluable contribution of the Diaspora to investment and Trade, Health and Education and community development.
