The mission will also be comprised of representatives from The Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago as well as the CARICOM Secretariat.
As part of this mission, Holness and the CARICOM delegation members are expected to have discussions with several critical Haitian stakeholder groups.
Other Jamaican members of the delegation include Jamaica’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith and Ambassador Rocky Meade.
Holness is expected to return to the island later this evening.
