Jamaica wants database of professionals abroad

KINGSTON — The government is looking to establish a comprehensive database of Jamaican professionals and investors abroad.

The State Minister in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Arnaldo Brown says, the ministry with help from the International Organisation on Migration, will embark on the project later this year.

Brown told the Jamaica Information Service that the database will be a critical tool in engaging the Diaspora in the development of the island.


He noted that all countries with well-developed Diaspora models, have a comprehensive database of their nationals, who are highly influential and successful.

The Foreign Ministry has been examining successful Diaspora models in countries such as Israel, India, Ireland, China and Mexico. (Gleaner)
