Jamaican Government Plans New Communications Policy

30 September 2013

Jamaica’s minister with responsibility for information, Sandrea Falconer, said the government will propose ways to strengthen access to information in the country.

“I am very pleased to inform you that soon, we will be tabling our new communications policy,” she said, according to a media report.  “We have just done the rough draft [and] we will be sharing it this week with government communicators and doing the necessary tweaking,” Falconer said.

Carolyn Gomes, executive director of Jamaicans for Justice, urged the government to hold consultations.

Jamaica passed its Access to Information Act in 2002. The government during the week of Sept. 23-28 sponsored activities to promote the law.
