There is also an agreement to finalise arrangements to sign a multi-destination tourism framework in the upcoming months.

In addition, a joint business and investment council will be established in the next few months, which will allow both private and public sector to collaborate on how to facilitate an increase in business and trade relations between the two countries.

Both Holness and Medina, stressed the importance of increasing levels of trade and bilateral investment including the investments of Jamaican firms in the Dominican financial sector, as well as Dominican investments in different economic sectors of Jamaica.

Holness expressed an interest in the social programmes that the government of the Dominican Republic has been developing, especially with regard to affordable housing through public-private partnerships, in order to examine the possibility of replicating similar initiatives in Jamaica.
