"Go Further, Faster..."


Nathaniel Peat - GJDC Representative UK South

My name is Nathaniel Peat and I have recently been elected to the Global Jamaica Diaspora Council to be a representative for the South United Kingdom and advisor to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade in Jamaica. Within my aims for the diaspora community here in the UK I will be strategically looking at ways to execute critical aspects of the National Diaspora Policy and Vision 2030 Goals for Jamaica such as:

Goal 1 : Jamaicans are empowered to achieve their fullest potential
Goal 2: The Jamaican society is secure, cohesive and just
Goal 3: Jamaicas economy is prosperous

Goal 4: Jamaica has a healthy enviroment

Jamaicans In the UK 

In the United Kingdom, we are proud Ambassadors of Jamaica. When you consider that our forerunners arrived at Tilbury docks via the Empire Windrush on 21 June 1948, we have made a tremendous impact on modern Britain over the last 75 years.

These brave men and women built a foundation for us the younger generation to continue to build our adopted country but never forgetting our roots and homeland Jamaica. It is through them that we learnt to be advocates for change for the whole of society. This, I add, is the influence of our homeland Jamaica. We are a resilient people with a never say die attitude.

In order to achieve these targets it is our collective responsibility and I am calling on the entire diaspora community, industry experts, leaders and community members to connect with me as I will be mapping out events, online discussions, seminars and providing forums to communicate. I am sure that you will agree with me that our beloved Jamaica evokes a range of emotions when you consider the warmth of the climate, the sumptuous cuisine, pulsating reggae beats and the influence of our people the world.  

The Windrush 75th year represents a new birth for us as Jamaica considers its future potentially as a republic. It presents, a new opportunity for the Diaspora to re-engage and re-ignite their passion for our beautiful island. We have to keep striving, we have to keep building, we have to keep sharing and maintaining our excellent level

 Let’s not be limited let’s aim for the best and shoot onward towards a bright future. If you are interested in becoming part of this movement please register using this contact form below.
