In photo: Flag of United Arab Emirates. Photo credit: cia.govKINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) — The Jamaican Cabinet has approved the signing of an air services agreement between the governments of Jamaica and the United Arab Emirates.This was disclosed by Minister with responsibility for Information, Telecommunications and Special Projects, Daryl Vaz, at Wednesday’s post-Cabinet press briefing.Vaz noted that the air services agreement was negotiated within the context of the open skies policy, which was previously approved by Cabinet.“The agreement entitles the designated airline(s) of both countries the right to exercise in any type of service (passenger, cargo and mail separately or in combination), full fifth freedom traffic rights to or from any intermediate or beyond points without any restriction,” he said.Open skies liberalises the movement of airlines between countries, creating a free market and competition. The agreement is meant specifically, to remove limits on the number of carriers, the number of frequencies per week and the size of aircraft operating between the states that are party to these air services agreements.In addition to commercial passenger and cargo services, the agreement seeks to facilitate code sharing among designated stakeholder airlines, and to encourage fair play among all interests, while discouraging discrimination and abuse of dominant positions.Open skies are expected to expand air linkages between Jamaica and other countries, facilitate investment and tourism flows and provide a framework within which designated commercial carriers can operate.By Chris PattersonCaribbean News Nowlast_img read more

This, in turn, will create a pool of qualified individuals who can be referred to other companies for employment in the fashion industry. As a comprehensive program, S.T.E.P. will encourage young and upcoming entrepreneurs to create their own sewing businesses, as well as prepare the participants for the workplace.As a result of this program, participants will not only gain the required vital skill of sewing but they will also be able to execute exceptional and quality customer service, whilst addressing emotional intelligent issues that may affect job performance.Mrs. Matthew also stated, “We are convinced that the positive outcome of this project will be beneficial not just to the participants but also help revamp our slow moving economy. It is our hope that more persons would be empowered and be integrated into the system. This should create more economic activities, hence resulting in a more dynamic economy.”Special thanks was made to  NDFD, and DAIC who made the 2020 program possible.
