Mr. Holness noted that Jamaica’s culture has primarily moved to the realm of entertainment, which has the potential to become a significant economic driver.

He said it was imperative that the role and value of culture in national development be borne adding “let’s be clear that Jamaica depends heavily on its culture.”
