KINGSTON, Jamaica — The shadow Cabinet of the People's National Party says it will use its three-day retreat as an opportunity to explore new policy directions, reflecting on what has worked, what has not been as effective as intended and how to approach some of the challenges facing Jamaica with new solutions.

In a press release today, the PNP said the retreat, which will begin tomorrow, is in keeping with its preparation process for governance.

The PNP added that shadow ministers will also discuss the findings of the commissions on land ownership, education and youth employment, and the new economy.

“The commissions, which were launched last year, focused on the main pillars of the platform for inclusive growth under a PNP–led government,” the Opposition party explained.

The PNP further stated that each shadow minister was tasked with developing new ideas and proposals that would inform and drive party policies in these critical areas in line with the PNP's “consistent commitment to social justice and equality”.
