NEW YORK, United States — Jampro, the trade promotion and investment arm of the Jamaican Government, is to reopen its New York Office shortly, according to Vivion Scully, the agency's regional manager for trade and investment.

Speaking with the Jamaica Observer on Thursday, Scully — who is based in Toronto — said limited work has already started on the office, which will be housed at the Jamaican Consulate at 767 Third Avenue in Manhattan.

According to Scully, the decision to re-open the Jampro office here is based on the knowledge that “it will be needed as a critical part of the global strategy of the agency” and the fact that the New York Tri-State area is home to the largest concentration of the Jamaican diaspora in the United States.

The agency's work in North America is currently being undertaken from its Toronto office.

Scully said that a May date is being eyed for the official reopening of the office. The Jampro New York Office and the Jamaica Tourist Board were closed some years ago as part of the Government's cost-cutting efforts at the time.
