J$100 Million budget for Jamaica's Emancipation and Independence celebrations

The budget for activities to highlight Jamaica's Emancipation and Independence celebrations has been significantly scaled down this year. Lisa Hanna, Culture Minister, said J$100 million dollars will be spent on activities which will begin on July 31 and continue until August 6. Of this amount J$53 million will be used to host the Grand Gala to be held on August 6.
This is a much smaller budget when compared to the J$690 million that was budgeted for Jamaica's 50th anniversary celebrations last year. The theme for this year's celebrations is Celebrating Jamaica: Triumphant, Proud and Free.
