SAN JUAN – U.S. Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) is scheduled to visit Jamaica this week for a series of activities organized by the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Jamaican government said Monday in a statement.
Clarke accepted an invitation from the MBCCI president, Gloria Henry, who will host a dinner on Friday in the congresswoman’s honor.
On Saturday, the U.S. congresswoman will meet with representatives from the manufacturing and energy sector, including the Jamaica Public Service Company and the Port Authority of Jamaica.
