Since 2003, the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) has hosted a series of economic forums called Outlook for the Future to provide members of the Jamaican Diaspora and friends of Jamaica in the United Kingdom, United States of America, and Canada with an opportunity to engage in frank discourse on various issues of importance affecting the island.

    These fora have received the full support of successive administrations of the Jamaican Government and of key public sector leaders; and have facilitated the sharing of first-hand information about development strategies impacting Jamaica and region.

    The success of the series have given rise to the emergence of other fora in response to the political and social needs of Jamaican and Caribbean peoples in the Diaspora, including: Think Tank Sessions, Caribbean Question Time, Immigration Seminars and the UK Diaspora Dialogue.

    In addition to these Keynote Speakers, key Public Sector Representatives have also participated in these fora, including:

    • Mr. Lucius Thomas, Assistant Commissioner in Charge of Crime
    • Mr. Derrick Smith, Opposition Spokesman on Crime
    • Dr. Horace Chang, Opposition Spokesman on Housing and Inner-City Development
    • Dr. Patricia Holness, Chief Executive Office, Registrar General Department
    • Mrs. Elizabeth Stair, Chief Executive Officer, National Land Agency
    • Mr. Glenmore Hinds, Assistant Commissioner of Police
    • Prof the Hon Gordon Shirley, President and CEO, Port Authority of Jamaica
    • Mr Ivan Anderson, Managing Director, National Road Operating and Construction Company
    • Senator Kamina Johnson-Smith, Opposition Spokesperson on Youth
    • Mr Edmund Bartlett, Opposition Spokesman on Foreign Affairs & Foreign Trade
