The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) has commended Prime Minister Andrew Holness on the selection of his new Cabinet members and the wider political executive of the Government.

In a statement on Monday, the PSOJ said it believes the cohort that has been selected “represents an excellent blend of experience and youth”.

Added the PSOJ: “We are particularly happy with the appointment of Fayval Williams as Minister of Education, Youth and Information, with the support of State Minister Robert Morgan, as we recognise that this portfolio requires transformation.

“We also welcome the separation of agriculture and fisheries, as this area requires focus (and) energy and Floyd Green is a good choice with his previous experience in this ministry.

“The amalgamation of housing, urban renewal, environment and climate change under Pearnel Charles Jr is another positive appointment,” added the PSOJ.

“Overall, we wish the new Cabinet and the newly appointed junior ministers success, and we pledge our support for the prime minister and his team as we move Jamaica forward, united as a people,” concluded the leading national private sector body.
