The Government has set aside $83.3 million to furnish the new Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade building, in downtown Kingston.

The project, which is slated to end in March 2021, is being financed by the Jamaican and the Chinese Governments.

The 11-storey structure consists of a two-storey annex building, a generator room, boundary wall, and a parking area. The building contains office facilities for the Ministry, meetings and conference facilities and waiting areas for diplomats and other visitors.

The project aims to contribute to the redevelopment of downtown Kingston by virtue of the relocation of the Ministry.

Construction work on the new building was completed last year and the building was formally handed over to the Government on October 16, 2019.
