Jamaica Customs heads to St. Elizabeth – first “Customs Meets the Community” engagement to get underway

On Thursday, May 25, the Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) will head to Santa Cruz, St. Elizabeth for its inaugural community-based engagement, “Customs Meets the Community,” under the theme: ‘Reaching Our Customers Where They Are.’

This initiative was launched in January this year, and is in keeping with the Agency’s strategy to expand its reach, augment its public education activities, and to better connect with its customers and stakeholders at the community or ‘ground level’.

The engagements will initially be undertaken in three parishes, St. Elizabeth, St. Catherine and Portland, and will provide information on travel, trade, Customs policies and clearance procedures as well as solicit feedback from customers and stakeholders.

The sessions will target civil society representatives, school administrators, church leaders and groups, returning residents, members of the political representatives, business people, charity groups, and the ‘man on the street’.

The initiative is being undertaken in collaboration with the Social Development Commission.
