Country More Ready to Secure Sustained Economic Growth – Finance Minister
Finance and Planning Minister, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips, says Jamaica is now more poised than it has ever been to secure sustained economic growth.
Dr. Phillips, who delivered a lecture entitled, ‘Jamaica’s Path to Prosperity’, at CIN 10th Annual Lecture Series at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, New York, on October 29, pointed out that Jamaica’s aspiration for social reform rests on this upward economic trend.
“All of us would want a society in which all our people find opportunity for good employment and secure the benefits of social progress in education and health, which will enable our people to reach their full potential as human beings,” he said.
US and JAMAICA Could Partner on Renewable Energy Projects – Congresswoman Clarke
United States (US) Congresswoman, Yvette Clarke, says the American Government could benefit from a partnership with Jamaica on alternative energy projects.
“Jamaica has become a leader in the development of alternative energy resources and I’m hopeful that the US will learn from their example and partner with them in becoming leaders in sustainable energy in this region,” she said.
Congresswoman Clarke made the comment as she welcomed Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. the Hon.

Caribbean International Network- leading the way to better sales!"
MESSAGE FROM VIEWERS
Just wondering why CIN is not available on long island's cablevision network. There are so many Caribbean people on long island and we need access as the other boroughs do. The paper media is great but we need live access as well. Hopefully in the very very near future long island with be included in your network access. Speaking for myself and others here on long island - our lives will be blessed if CIN is available to us! Thanks!!! >>> Maureeen
I've heard so much about CIN being broadcasted in the New York area. Is it possible CIN could start broadcasting in the Delaware Valley which covers South Jersey, Philadelphia (and other cities in Pennsylvania ) and Delaware regions? Afterall, there are a lot of Jamaicans and other West Indians living here too, and we're missing out on CIN. Please consider coming to our region, that would be greatly appreciated. >>> Sharon
