Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia Grange, says the Government is committed to strengthening Jamaica’s entertainment, culture and creative industries (ECCI).

Noting that the Government is the largest funder of these, with a 2023/24 budgeted allocation of $15.4 billion, Minister Grange said approximately one-third of the provision was earmarked for her portfolio.

She added that with a marginal increase of the budget ceiling for 2024/25, she will continue to seek more funding for programmes and projects.
