Christmas Season Greetings From IAJ President

June 25th, 2015|

The Christmas Season is upon us and so too will its accompanying festivities, spirit of good cheer and its central theme ‘Peace on Earth and Good will towards all’. For many of us it is truly the happiest time of the year. 2014 is fast approaching its end and what a year it has been. As a country, we are still grappling with social, economic, environmental and other challenges but when all negative and positive conditions are taken into consideration we are
obliged to conclude that Jamaica is indeed a blessed country.
