PM Holness Says The Government Will Help Develop Jamaica’s Entertainment
Speaking in the Parliament recently, Prime Minister, Andrew Holness said investment would be made in the entertainment industry. The PM also encouraged the major stakeholders in the industry to join in to develop strategies for the development of their product.
He believes the industry could attract a lot of attention as the world gets ready to transition out of the pandemic that caused so much distress.
Mr. Holness is ready to have a talk with the entertainers to make plans to accommodate the entertainment sector in a better way, as he doesn’t want anyone to believe dancehall is getting a fight.
He plans to make plans for economic recovery, and he wants culture and music to play a role in what needs to be done as he is acutely aware of how much the industry has been hurt because of the protocols and restrictions the country had to implement in order to reduce the spread of the virus.
He acknowledges that the designated spaces on the island for entertainment is insufficient and that should be fixed.
