Tenth Biennial Jamaican Diaspora Conference

The Tenth Biennial Jamaican Diaspora Conference will be held 16th -20th June 2024 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James, under the theme "United for Jamaica’s Transformation: Fostering Peace, Productivity, and Youth Empowerment."

The Biennial Conference convened by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, remains the signature event in Jamaica’s effort to meaningfully engage with Jamaicans dispersed around the globe and encourage their involvement in shaping the island’s future.

This year, as we mark 20 years of Diaspora engagement and the Conference’s milestone 10th staging, we welcome your participation at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, to reconnect, re-engage, and co-create new pathways for Jamaica’s transformation, under the theme 'United for Jamaica’s Transformation: Fostering Peace, Productivity, and Youth Empowerment."

The comprehensive programme is designed to foster crucial conversations around Security, Business, Trade, Investment, Community Development, Youth Empowerment, The Orange Economy, Health, Technology and Education. Activities will include official ceremonies, nightly special events, the Governor-General's Diaspora Achievement Awards, interwoven cultural entertainment, excursions and a bustling Marketplace of goods and services to do business. The Conference culminates with the Diaspora Day of Service.

This event is a great chance to connect with fellow Jamaicans living abroad, explore business opportunities and learn more about how you can contribute to the growth and development of our beautiful island.

Anyone of Jamaican descent, who resides outside of Jamaica or in Jamaica, can attend and participate. There are no restrictions.

This Conference is a call to all Jamaicans – 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation, young professionals, Conference stalwarts, entrepreneurs, creatives, philanthropists, investors and community pillars.

If you want a stake in Jamaica’s future and have a desire to contribute to our national narrative or seek to connect with your roots or explore business opportunities, this event is for you.

Join Us in June!
