Jamaica Tourism Ministry discusses pension plan with Montego Bay Tourism employees

The Chairman of the Tourism Workers Pension Scheme, Daisy Coke, underscored the importance of being a member of the pension program during a meeting with employees of the sector at the Montego Bay Convention Centre last week.

The introduction of a pension scheme forms part of ongoing efforts to enhance the well-being of tourism workers. Details of the program are being finalized with the aim of introducing a contributory scheme by June 2018.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, Jennifer Griffith, also addressed tourism stakeholders in Montego Bay about the tourism workers’ pension scheme.

The fund is expected to benefit some 90,000 persons employed in the tourism industry and will be bolstered by $1 billion being provided by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) over a 5-year period.

The meeting, which took place at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, forms part of a series of stakeholder consultations being held before the program is implemented.
