The EU Delegation to Jamaica was established in 1975 after the signature of the first Lomé Convention in Togo. The Delegation also covers Belize, the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos Islands and Cayman Islands. The Delegation represents the EU in all matters relating to partnership with Jamaica. It also works closely with EU countries as well as with representatives of non-EU countries and multilateral organisations. The Delegation helps managing EU’s programmes in the region. Its role has expanded greatly in recent years, making EU external assistance both more rapid and efficient.
