State Minister in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade (MFAFT) Senator Pearnel Charles Jr. is in the UK on a “diaspora trip.” As I am sure you know, the “diaspora” is that large, but often scattered community of people of Jamaican descent living overseas, whatever their citizenship status. There are several Jamaican Diaspora Boards, whom the Jamaican Government hold conferences with, from time to time. Speeches are made. Meetings are held. There is always discussion about the “role of the diaspora.” Perhaps that is for another discussion.
