Today marks the start of Diplomatic Week and some 23 non-resident heads of missions are expected in Jamaica to hold bilateral talks and participate in planned festivities.
Diplomatic Week celebrations started in 1998 and serves to underscore the contribution diplomats have made to the cordial relations between Jamaica and its foreign partners.
Director of Protocol in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Patricia Rodney-Evering says it also provides an opportunity for diplomats to advance areas of co-operation between their respective states.
The week of activities will start with a thanksgiving service at the Swallowfield Chapel, in St Andrew, which started at 10:45 this morning.
Mrs Rodney-Evering says new diplomats, along with their resident counterparts, will be briefed on the economic and political developments in the country during a separate address by Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller and Foreign Affairs Minister A. J. Nicholson on Tuesday.
