‘India-Jamaica Friendship Garden’ was recently inaugurated in St. Andrew, Jamaica

India-Jamaica Friendship Garden’ was recently inaugurated at the Hope Royal Botanical Gardens in St. Andrew, Jamaica, which was facilitated under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between the Indian High Commission in Jamaica and the Nature Preservation Foundation (NPF) in 2021.

 

President Ram Nath Kovind inaugurated the garden. The garden will serve as a symbol of the long-standing relations between India and Jamaica. While the Indian President was on a four-day state visit to Jamaica, he also inaugurated “Dr BR Ambedkar Avenue”. It is the first-ever visit by an Indian President to Jamaica. The visit also coincides with the celebration of Jamaica’s 60th year of Independence. India and Jamaica enjoy cordial relations based on common linkages of history, Commonwealth membership, democratic values, and the interest for cricket.
