I am delighted to invite all buyers, sellers and other players in the tourism industry to register online for the 27th staging of Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX), taking place in St. James from September 24 to 26, at the Montego Bay Convention Centre.

Throughout the years, JAPEX has proven to be a highly beneficial marketing event for tourism partners and is a critical tool in fostering growth within the sector. It is for this reason that my Ministry, through our agency the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB), is pleased to again be partnering with the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association to stage this important private-public sector initiative.

Our Tourism Linkages Network will also be coordinating the participation of local suppliers of goods and services. This activity is done in partnership with the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA), the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC), Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO), and the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA).

The initiative is in keeping with my Ministry's mandate to increase investments in locally manufactured goods. It will also help to further strengthen linkages or partnerships forged with tourism and other key industries such as manufacturing, gastronomy and agriculture.

Over the years, the successful partnerships created via JAPEX have proven to be very lucrative to all parties involved. This is perhaps because JAPEX offers a unique environment for major local producers to meet with travel wholesalers and tour operators, for brief pre-arranged meetings.

I am sure that this year will also be a great success. I therefore encourage you to register early, by using the convenient system available on this website, and I look forward to seeing you at JAPEX 2018.

Hon. Edmund Bartlett, CD, MP
Minister of Tourism
