Read Across Jamaica Day
The Vision 2030 Jamaica Secretariat visited and read the novel “Myra and Milo Learn Manners with Mr. Mongoose” at three schools in the Corporate Area:

• Adonijah Group of Schools
The team was joined by Keneea Linton, Fashion Designer and owner of Keneea Linton Boutique, Janelle Pantry-Coke, Managing Director of Spaces Jamaica and Tamara Hill, author of the chosen novel.
The Secretariat observed Teacher’s Day and took the opportunity to present teachers with special tokens to say thanks for their continued contribution in helping to ensure our young people are empowered to achieve their fullest potential and make “Jamaica, the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business”.
National Children’s Day
Vision 2030 Jamaica partnered with the National Child Month Committee for National Children’s Day which was celebrated islandwide on Friday May 18, 2018. The team journeyed to Half Way Tree to wish our children “Happy Children’s Day” and present them with goody bags and Vision 2030 Jamaica tokens.
About Vision 2030 Jamaica:
Vision 2030 Jamaica – National Development Plan, the country’s first long-term strategic development plan, provides a comprehensive planning framework in which the economic, social, environmental and governance aspects of national development are integrated. The Plan, which was approved in Parliament in 2009, is intended to put Jamaica in a position to achieve developed country status by 2030 and is based on the vision statement: “Jamaica, the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business”.
Vision 2030 Jamaica is implemented through a series of Medium Term Socio- Economic Policy\ Frameworks (MTFs), which identify the priority outcomes, strategies and actions for each three-year period from 2009 to 2030. The MTF is an operational document designed to achieve realistic, specific, high priority national outcomes and targets towards the achievement of longer-term goals, using a results-based management approach.
