JAMAICAN CHILDREN VISIT JAPAN TO REPRESENT WESTMORELAND, JAMAICA

The Westmoreland Municipal Corporation embarked on a Sister Region Twinning Agreement with Tottori Prefecture in Japan, where our Jamaican athletes will be going to train for the 2020 Summer Olympics. This agreement has created a platform of a mutually beneficial friendship between both countries. This will enable the territories to garner information and establish linkage in the areas of Sports, Agriculture and Fisheries, Education, Tourism and Culture. For the past two years, 2017 and 2018, there has been an exchange of Japanese students to Jamaica. This year, Ten (10) students from participating schools in Westmoreland, including our Tablet Program, are being invited by the Tottori Prefectural Government to visit Japan as part of the cultural exchange that has been taking place between both countries.
