AC Marriott Hotel Represents the Type of Investment that is Designed to

Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the new 220-room AC Marriott Kingston Hotel development, represents the type of investment that is designed to create economic opportunities and address social issues such as unemployment, which the Government is focused on promoting.The US$55 million hotel, which slated to be officially opened on Monday (June 17), resulted from a partnership forged between the Sandals Resorts International Group, headquartered in Jamaica, and global hotel chain, Marriott International.Mr. Holness who, on Friday (June 14) toured the establishment, situated on Lady Musgrave Road, with Sandals Group Deputy Chairman, Adam Stewart, highlighted the fact that 219 of the 220 employees are Jamaicans.He told JIS News that information on their background suggest that “many of them are young people who were not employed before or had no prospects before”.The Prime Minister further pointed out that a number of them are coming from households, “which, probably, did not have an income before”, adding that “prospectively, for the next five years, they now have an income”.“It’s very important that the public understand the synergy between economic investment and social development. This is not just an investment that is going to [yield] profit for an investor. It is an investment that will provide income for households… placing people at the centre of development. All in all, I think everyone wins with this kind of development,” he added.Mr. Holness further pointed out that State agencies and initiatives such as the Citizen Security and Justice Programme (CSJP), HEART Trust/NTA, and Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) programme, were pivotal in preparing and positioning them for consideration and selection.For his part, Mr. Stewart said the Group is pleased with the high calibre team of employees who have been recruited, noting that “many of them [are] recent school leavers in the last several years”.He said training for the staff has been facilitated through development programmes provided by Marriott International, as well as the Sandals Corporate University.The service delivery focus areas include: banqueting, events, excursions, housekeeping, transportation, and tours.“We have been able to prove in our company that Jamaica can compete at the absolute highest standards with training and development,” Mr. Stewart added.Meanwhile, Mr Stewart said Sandals’ decision to embark on the hotel development stemmed from its view that “there has never been a better time to invest in Jamaica” noting, among other things, that “consumer confidence is at an all-time high”.“We feel more proud and confident today than the day we turned the soil on this project. Jamaica continues to rise and I think that under the leadership of our Honourable Prime Minister, the future of Jamaica is [going to experience] a boom. The next generation of Jamaicans should feel very proud to be a part of this journey… it’s quite awesome,” he added.Mr. Stewart told JIS News that reservations have already been received for approximately 20 per of the rooms, while the establishment has been booked for over 40 conferences and events.He advised that the conference facilities can comfortably accommodate over 600 persons Story Highlights The US$55 million hotel, which slated to be officially opened on Monday (June 17), resulted from a partnership forged between the Sandals Resorts International Group, headquartered in Jamaica, and global hotel chain, Marriott International.

Growth of 1 for ApriltoJune Quarter

The Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) is reporting an estimated one per cent first quarter fiscal year growth for April to June 2019. Story Highlights Dr. Henry said the June quarter out-turn largely reflected increased capacity utilisation at some industrial plants, such as State refinery, Petrojam; increased external demand, which drove output in some export industries, such as Hotels and Restaurants; increased domestic demand, facilitated by higher levels of employment, which enabled growth in sectors such as Manufacturing, and Finance and Insurance Services; and the continued positive impact of the resumption of operations at the Alpart alumina refinery, albeit at a slower rate. The Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) is reporting an estimated one per cent first quarter fiscal year growth for April to June 2019.Director General, Dr. Wayne Henry, says the out-turn, buoyed primarily by a 1.4 per cent expansion of the Services Industry, extends Jamaica’s growth trend to 18 consecutive quarters or four and a half years, despite the overall flat performance in the Goods-Producing Industry.He was speaking at the PIOJ’s quarterly briefing at the Institute’s head office in New Kingston on Monday (August 26).Dr. Henry said the June quarter out-turn largely reflected increased capacity utilisation at some industrial plants, such as State refinery, Petrojam; increased external demand, which drove output in some export industries, such as Hotels and Restaurants; increased domestic demand, facilitated by higher levels of employment, which enabled growth in sectors such as Manufacturing, and Finance and Insurance Services; and the continued positive impact of the resumption of operations at the Alpart alumina refinery, albeit at a slower rate.He noted, however, that further growth was stymied by drought conditions, which negatively impacted output in agriculture and constrained growth in the food-processing component of the Manufacturing Industry; and the winding down of several major infrastructure projects during the review quarter.These, the Director General pointed out, include the Hagley Park and Constant Spring Road Improvement Projects, “which had contributed significantly to growth in construction during the corresponding quarter of 2018.”Meanwhile, Dr. Henry said the 1.4 per cent Services Industry out-turn, which reflected growth in all subsectors, was largely spurred by an estimated 5.6 per cent expansion in Hotels and Restaurants, consequent on a 7.8 per cent increase in foreign national arrivals.Total stopover arrivals, he informed, grew by 8.4 per cent, reflecting stronger performance by Jamaica’s main source markets – the USA, up 11.8 per cent, to 489,016 persons; Europe, up 2.4 per cent, to 75,261 persons; and Latin America, up 22 per cent, to 10,285 persons.Dr. Henry pointed out that stop over arrivals from Canada contracted by an estimated 4.8 per cent, to 85,712 persons.Additionally, he said cruise passenger arrivals also contracted by 23.2 per cent to 273,823 persons, resulting in a three per cent reduction in total visitor arrivals to 956,209.Despite this, the Director General said visitor expenditure increased by 10.2 per cent to US$852.7 million.Provisional data, he added, indicate that airport arrivals increased by 4.8 per cent for July 2019, relative to the corresponding period last year.He further pointed out that growth in the other seven services subsectors ranged between 0.1 and 1.8 per cent.Dr. Henry said the Goods-Producing Industry’s flat out-turn was largely attributed to improved performances by the mining and quarrying, and manufacturing industries, which grew by 4.5 and 1.7 per cent, respectively.He noted that the growth in mining and quarrying resulted from increased alumina production of 7.5 per cent to 624.7 kilo-tonnes, despite crude bauxite production contracting by 18.5 per cent, reflecting lower demand from third party customers.Real value added in manufacturing, Dr. Henry informed, resulted from increased output in the ‘Food, Beverage and Tobacco’ and ‘Other Manufacturing’ components.He pointed out that these were counter-balanced by estimated contraction of 2.5 per cent in the Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing Industry, and one per cent in construction.Dr. Henry said the drought conditions affecting agriculture stemmed from below normal rainfall levels during the months of the review quarter.“This resulted in lower production of ‘Other Agricultural Crops’, down 1.3 per cent, and ‘Traditional Export Crops’, down 12.5 per cent. These contractions outweighed an estimated growth in animal farming, up 1.9 per cent,” he outlined.The Director General said contraction in construction reflected a 28.2 per cent reduction in expenditure by the National Works Agency (NWA) for road expansion and rehabilitation work, consequent on the winding down of several major infrastructural projects, and delays in the start-up of new developments, scheduled to commence this year; and an 11 per cent reduction in Jamaica Public Service (JPS) expenditure, consequent on a lower spend on power transmission and distribution following completion of the JPS’ 190-megawatt Old Harbour plant.He pointed out, however, that there was an estimated growth in Building Construction, reflective of the continuation of work started in previous quarters, as well as new building activities, commencing during the quarter.These include 38 per cent increase in the number of housing starts by the National Housing Trust (NHT) to 999 units, relative to the corresponding quarter of 2018; and a 26.7 per cent increase in the stock of commercial bank loans and advances to $39.7 billion.Meanwhile, Dr. Henry said growth for January to June 2019 is estimated to have increased by 1.4 per cent, relative to the corresponding period of the previous year.This, he noted, resulted from estimated growth of 1.6 per cent in the Services Industry and 0.8 per cent in the Goods-Producing Industry.The Director General said the growth prospects for July to September 2019 are “generally positive”, and expected to be in the range of 0.5 to 1.5 per cent.This, Dr. Henry noted, is based on the anticipated strengthening of the performance of most industries relative to the similar quarter of 2018, while adding that growth is projected to be within the range of one to two per cent for the 2019/20 fiscal year. Director General, Dr. Wayne Henry, says the out-turn, buoyed primarily by a 1.4 per cent expansion of the Services Industry, extends Jamaica’s growth trend to 18 consecutive quarters or four and a half years, despite the overall flat performance in the Goods-Producing Industry. read more
