Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth & Job Creation Daryl Vaz, on Saturday toured the town of Port Royal to update residents of the plan to development Port Royal.
In a post online the Prime Minister reassured the residents that “they will be at the centre of the development plan as the Government seeks to foster inclusive growth and prosperity”.
He added that the Government will ensure that the peaceful profile and economic and cultural value of Port Royal are maintained and that the residents of Port Royal benefit.
His visit follows the displacement of resident last week in an area that is designated for development. One resident who spoke to the media said he has no where else to go and he is now sleeping in his bathroom because the rest of the house was demolished.
