He said : “I had a great meeting with my brother and friend, banker, businessman and philanthropist from Nigeria, Tony Elumelu.

” In our discussions we observed that there is always great desire and aspiration to strengthen the bonds and connection between Africa and the Caribbean in all areas, especially trade & investment. We lamented however, that we haven’t been able to move far beyond ideas and words.”

“Through our actions, that is about to change. A new breed of African capitalists, entrepreneurs and business minds, who are conscious of our history and the current circumstances of our people, is emerging.

“They are committed not only to doing, well but equally to doing good; to create and share prosperity.

” Tony and I discussed opportunities and prospects for investments in the Jamaican Financial Sector, Tourism and Hospitality, Energy, Logistics and Global Services, Agribusiness, Healthcare and the Film Industry.

” We will also be collaborating on extending the Tony Elumelu Foundation Youth Entrepreneurship Programme to Jamaica.

” The Foundation has given financial and technical support to young entrepreneurs all over the African Continent.”
