Mr. Speaker today I rise to speak in this honourable house on matters which I truly believe will make Jamaica a much better place. We intend through this Ministry to ensure that we take this country and its people from poverty to prosperity.
To make this country strong, the build out of our infrastructure will be key. This includes ensuring that our people live in suitable houses, travel on reasonably good roads and enjoy a way of life that reflects positive change.
I will this afternoon outline to this House some important pillars of our plan to move our people and this country from poverty to prosperity.
I will be taking you through the various programmes that we now have on the roads, as well as share with you other exciting initiatives that will be undertaken by this administration.
