Jamaica is strengthening its diplomatic relations with African countries, taking tourism to the top of the agenda among key areas for cooperation.

Diplomatic relations between Jamaica and Africa now covers about 19 African states in Southern and Eastern Africa. In its plan to extend and strengthen its relations to African states, the Jamaican government had
accredited Madam Angela Veronica Comfort to represent Jamaica in Tanzania.

The Jamaican had presented her credentials to the President of Tanzania, Dr. John Magufuli, this week. She will represent her country in
Tanzania through South Africa.

The diplomat is currently working as the Jamaican High
Commissioner to South Africa representing Angola, Botswana, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Somalia, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Madam Comfort is currently based in Pretoria, South Africa.
She took the post about two years ago to represent the Caribbean state of
Jamaica in Africa.

Famous for pristine beaches of the Caribbean Sea and rich cultural heritage, Jamaica is almost dominated by African cultures with over 90
percent of the Jamaican population being of African descent.

Jamaica abounds in fine beaches and scenic beauty with strong African heritage portrayed with a wide variety of attractions and entertainment events all the year round, full of numerous recreational opportunities. Tourism accounts for more than 60 percent of Jamaica’s economy.

Former Tanzanian president, Mr. Jakaya Kikwete, had visited Jamaica in 2009 and advised the Tanzanian tourist stakeholders and the government officials to learn from the Caribbean state on how to develop and market beach tourism.
