Joseph Edwards stated, “Happy Sabbath to you PM and all worshippers. It is a blessed day. I’m watching Pastor Doug Bachelor from the Granite Bay SDA church in California. Of course I started with the President of the Jamaican Union of SDA, Pastor Everett Brown preaching at the East Jamaica Conference of SDA in St. Andrew.”
Carole Murphy said, “Shame the National discussion didn’t include many peoples dismay about the constant and latest destruction of a beautiful and essential part of this country with the Boxite devastation and for so little reward for the country at the huge cost to our future generations.”
Prime Minister Holness attended a virtual meeting with United States Vice President Kamala Harris and fellow Caribbean Leaders as we continue to focus on our economic recovery in the aftermath, and indeed the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic.
Other areas of discussion during the meeting were Security Cooperation and Climate Resilience and Energy Security.
