JEA on eviction of journalists from logistics hub meeting
2013-08-30 14:00:51 | (0 Comments)
The Jamaica Exporters’ Association (JEA) has expressed regret at an incident yesterday in which journalists were asked to leave a meeting set to discuss issues relating to the Logistics Hub initiative.
JEA President Andrew Collins points out that all arrangements related to the participation of the media were coordinated by representatives of the Ministry of Industry Investment and Commerce.
The Ministry has said that the invitation was sent to the media in error.
Collins explains that plans for the Members Forum on the Logistics Hub were made in July as a follow-up to discussions with Minister Hylton held during National Exporters’ Month in June.
He says the event was not organised as a result of any new developments related to the Logistics Hub.
The JEA President says the association supports and is committed to a free and fair press and the related freedoms enjoyed by the media in Jamaica and internationally.
