The Government through the Housing Agency of Jamaica and China Harbour Engineering Company this morning signed USD 9.5 billion in contracts for the construction of 1650 houses at Catherine Estates in St Catherine. Prime Minister Mr Andrew Holness welcomed the Public Private Partnership agreement which he said will be the largest undertaking of housing solutions in St Catherine since the development of Greater Portmore in 1992. According to Holness, the agreement is based upon the design, build and finance model which allows for affordable and efficient housing solutions. Every Jamaican should have access to safe, sustainable an affordable housing. That is what our vision 2030 speaks to. The HAJ is slated to provide more than 3,000 housing solutions for the fiscal year 2019/2020.

In that regard, Holness asserted that the new 2019 draft housing policy that was tabled in Parliament envisions a country where sufficient, appropriate and sustainable housing choices are available.
