My fellow Jamaicans, I am delighted to convey warm greetings to you as we celebrate the 15th Jamaica Diaspora Day. It is indeed a great honour for me to serve at this special juncture as Ambassador of a people whose talent, resilienceand giving spirit remain hallmarks worthy of the Jamaican heritage and outstanding strength in these unprecedented times.
