The Jamaica Tourist Board Expresses Interest In Partnering With The Organizers Of The Aarhus Reggae Festival

The Jamaica Tourist Board Expresses Interest In Partnering With The Organizers Of The Aarhus Reggae FestivalThe Jamaica Tourist Board is now in talks with the organizers of the Aarhus Reggae Festival as they are interested in partnering with them for the 2015 staging of the festival as well as future events. Both entities believe that as Danish people are allotted approximately six weeks of vacation time annually and are known to be the most travelled in Europe, this will be beneficial to the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB).

One of the main features of the Aarhus Reggae Festival will be highlighting and promoting all things Jamaica. There will be exhibition booths and a segment dedicated to encouraging Danes to visit Jamaica. The producers of the festival will also commit a section of the show to having someone from their team talk about visiting and investing in Jamaica. This will be done on stage on both days.

Maria Jackson Entertainment is the official media/marketing company for the Aarhus Reggae Festival. All media inquiries regarding this event should be directed to info@mjent.net

Petition to save Jamaica’s land from China (@KabuMaatKheru @PSimpsonMiller)


China has petitioned the Government of Jamaica for parts of the whole of the 800 acre Roaring River Water Shed area in St. Ann (adjoining Dunns River) as payment on loans which the People of Jamaica had no say in!

These lands are sitting on one of Jamaica’s most important Limestone Plateaus and provide water for the Hydro Electric plant at Laughing Waters, Steer Town and Chalky Hill and other areas of St. Ann.

China aims to build on these lands (resort or China Town) and in so doing will upset the entire water system in the Rio Bueno Water Shed Management Unit! This will undoubtedly result in serious environmental problems for St. Ann and Jamaica and seriously disrupt the ability of the Government to provide adequate water supply to thousands of Jamaican citizens!
